Richard Clarke (Jack Benny) is a good-natured lawyer who lacks the hard-boiled legal instincts to be financially successful. When the object of his affections, Janie Brown (Priscilla Lane), decides to marry a wealthy suitor, Richard resolves to relocate his legal practice to New York City and make an attempt to win Janie's heart. Now, with the help of litigious billionaire Frederick Leggitt (Edmund Gwenn), Clarke makes the transformation from nice-guy attorney to ruthless legal shark.
