Review Preston Sturges adapted an uncredited play by Vera Caspary in this comedy about a banker who gives a sable coat to a stranger, who meets his useless son...Banker J. B. Ball (Edward Arnold) objects to his son John Ball (Ray Milland) buying a foreign car. John says he will work for a living. J. B. sees a $58,000 bill for a sable coat and asks his wife (Mary Nash) about it. Finding several fur coats in her closet, he throws it off the roof, and it lands on Mary Smith (Jean Arthur) in a bus. Mary tries to return it, but J. B. gives it to her. He gives her a ride and tries to explain compound interest. J. B. buys Mary a sable hat. She writes for a boys magazine; but they question her about the coat and fire her. J. B. learns that his wife went to Florida. Louis (Luis Alberni) owes money for his hotel to J. B., who gives him a week. Mary owes $7 for a week's rent but gets a telegram to see Louis at his hotel. Louis shows Mary the imperial suite and gives it to her for $7 a week if she will boost the hotel...This mad-cap comedy allows audiences to identify with someone suddenly given wealth who can now mingle with the upper class, while poking fun at the volatility of stocks.
