VCI-Entertainment of Tulsa said this 1945 film is an American musical comedy film directed by Hal Walker, starring Betty Hutton and distributed by Paramount Pictures, Hutton portrays Judy Peabody, a hat-check girl at the famed New York nightspot, The Stork Club. One night after work, Hutton rescues an old tramp, played by Barry Fitzgerald, from drowning. The tramp is really a millionaire, despondent over a failing marriage and in his gratitude, anonymously provides for her financial well-being. Being set up in luxury changes her life - but not all for the best and jealousy rears its ugly head over the unknown benefactor causing Judy’s boyfriend to dump her, all of which culminated in a humorous and entertaining B & W film rumored to have been financed by the original and famous Manhattan, New York Stork club.”
