Additional Info

Sam Levene played the Broadway part of a harried TV quiz show producer who is anxious to divorce his current wife and remarry his first wife. He needs two hundred thousand dollars for the settlement which he is confident of getting from future profits of his show, "Make a Million." However, his prize contestant, a simple Southern girl, becomes pregnant without benefit of clergy. She knows only that the father is a soldier named John. The sponsor will cancel the show unless the girl is married at once, and after a frantic search the soldier is found. The soldier agrees to marry the girl when he discovers she could make a million dollars, but she changes her mind when she learns that the boy does not really love her. However, she is tricked into agreeing to the marriage when the producer stages a fake suicide attempt by the soldier on the window ledge of the penthouse office. When the ex-wife, who is also the producer's secretary, discovers this hoax, she threatens to walk out. The producer then finds a way to rid himself of the soldier so that the Southern girl can marry her hometown sweetheart, the boy she really loves.
