Plot Summary

Facing a corruption probe headed by Senator Oliver Loganberry (Victor Moore), a few shady Louisiana businessmen try to blame their crimes on associate Jim Taylor (Bob Hope). Taylor, meanwhile, tries to maneuver the senator into a sex scandal by arranging for a meeting between Loganberry and exotic bombshell Marina Von Minden (Vera Zorina). But Taylor himself develops feelings for Von Minden, and, as this musical satire heads for home, the combatants brace for a showdown at the state capital.
