Synopsis: Hit hard by the financial crash of the 1930s, Edmund Gilbert and his beautiful daughter, Lilian, have fallen on hard times. Their stately home is gone and they cannot even afford to pay the utilities on their modest apartment. Paul Martin has been sent by the electric company to collect or shut off the lights. Lilian applies her sex-appeal to Martin and in no time at all, he is not only distracted from his mission, but he agrees to join forces with the Gilberts. The three create an elaborate scheme to get greedy investors to compete for shares in their "amazing new company" - with hilarious results.
