The Bride's Fair in a small Norwegian village is interrupted by the forced landing of Jimmy Hall (Don Ameche) and Duke Sargent (Cesar Romero), two Americans lost - really, really lost - while flying from New York to Paris. Jimmy is the manager of Duke, a publicity-seeking band leader. An old superstition points to Duke as the appointed husband-to-be (not likely) of Trudy Ericksen (Sonja Henie), daughter of villager Herr Ericksen (Jean Hersholt). Duke, however, has an understanding with Flo Kelly (Ethel Merman) back in the states, and leaves for Paris. Trudy follows him to New York, only to find he has left for Florida with Flo. Jimmy takes Trudy skating in Central Park, falls in love with her and is so impressed that he gets her a contract to skate professionally. Duke hears of her success and flies back and begins a series of romantic entanglements.
