Brief Synopsis

Gloria Dobson (Jane Frazee) is finding it hard to become a night club singer in New York because she has "no name". She is given a chance to acquire one when her trunk is delivered by mistake to the home of socialite James Manning III (Robert Paige). The latter's wealthy Aunt Matilda (Elizabeth Patterson) has Jimmy tagged for marriage to Louella Marvin (Jan Wiley). Jimmy, not interested in marrying Louella, and his butler, Michael (Charles Coleman) persuade Gloria, who has come to claim her trunk, to be introduced to Aunt Mathilda as Jimmy's "secret bride". The news of his "secret marriage" makes the newspapers, and his lawyers advise him that the only way out is an actual marriage to Gloria, followed by a quick divorce. Gloria agrees and they are married, and she discovers she has fallen in love with Jimmy. But humiliated because Jimmy still wants a divorce, she defiantly obtains a night club singing engagement on the strength of her married name. Jimmy ruins her chances of gaining recognition by buying up all the club's reservations for three weeks. Gloria then heads for Reno to get a divorce. Jimmy, realizing that he does love Gloria, flies to catch her Reno-bound train...
