Synopsis

Robert Bennett, the junior partner in a brokerage firm, bets $10,000 of his sweetheart's money that he will tell nothing but the truth for 24 hours, quickly getting himself, his friends, and his employer into a number of difficult situations. He does not tell a lie, however, and wins the bet. He then tells a whole string of lies to straighten out the troubles into which he has gotten himself.
