Description by OLDIES.com:
The most debonair of movie stars - Cary Grant - has one of his great early roles in this fast-paced romantic comedy/love story. Grant portrays multi-millionaire Ernest Bliss, a young man who has lots of money but little to do. He seeks the help of a physician who decides that wealth is Ernest's problem and prescribes a unique cure: Ernest must go to work and earn his own living for a year, using none of his current wealth. Betting his doctor £50,000 that he can, his amazing adventure begins!
Moving from one job to the next, he quickly rises from his position as a chauffeur to the executive boardroom. On his climb he learns many lessons of humility and falls in love with a young secretary (Mary Brian). Will Ernest's amazing adventure end happily? More than 60 years after it was filmed, the movie's last scenes will still surprise you!
In an effort to subdue a bout of depression, a millionaire playboy (Cary Grant) makes a 50,000 English pound bet with a psychiatrist that he could become a famous business tycoon without using his family's inheritance. Based on the novel "The Amazing Quest" by Ernest Bliss.
