Plot Summary
Beleaguered family man Bill Lawrence (James Stewart) is thrilled beyond belief when he wins a radio contest, but the crazy prizes prove more of a liability than an asset. Bill needs to somehow freeze a ton of beef, take care of a Palomino pony, and put up with his new decorator (Alan Mowbray). As if that weren't bad enough, he can't afford the taxes on all his winnings, and his wife (Barbara Hale) is beginning to resent his spending so much time with an attractive painter (Patricia Medina).
