Paramount originally hired Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough to collaborate with Sheridan Gibney on the screenplay. Kimbrough recounted their Hollywood experiences in her book "We followed our hearts to Hollywood". Though little of Skinner and Kimbrough's work was retained in the final shoot script, Kimbrough was hired to act as technical adviser during the filming. See more »
Cornelia (Gail Russell) and Emily (Diana Lynn) decide to go on a trip to Europe as Cornelia discovers that Avery (James Brown) is travelling there. On the ship, Cornelia meets Avery while Lynn meets Tom (Bill Edwards) and the four become travelling partners. They disembark in England and visit France before making their way back home.
There is no plot in this story. It's a sequence of incidents that take you from the beginning to the end. The acting is pretty wooden in parts, especially from Brown, Edwards and Russell. The acting honours go to Charles Ruggles (Otis Skinner), Dorothy Gish (Mrs Skinner) and Lynn. Brown is a typically brainless, lug-headed American and Edwards is even worse! The film alternates between funny moments and drawn out scenes.
