Description by OLDIES.com:

Ace Connors (John Hodiak) is a con man on the run, chased by determined cop Bob Simms (Lloyd Nolan) who is trying to convince Ace to turn in the bonds he has stolen in exchange for a reduced sentence. When Simms catches up with Connors, the con man talks him into taking a train ride back east that will take them through the Southwest and into New Orleans. Entering into the fray is Ricki Woodner (Lucille Ball), who is looking to con the con man out of his bonds, while falling for him and Fly Feletti (Elisha Cook, Jr.), a snarling trigger man hot on Ace's trail. The tension builds to an exciting climax during Mardi Gras.

Product Description:

One of two con-artists ends up arrested and given five days of freedom before he must go to jail. This comedy chronicles those five days. The man loves to eat; knowing that prison food is lousy, he decides to spend his days stuffing himself with the finest foods available. He is accompanied to numerous 4-star restaurants by his partner and the arresting officer. Each of these two are interested in learning where he stashed a half-million dollars in loot. Eventually the man begins looking at his lovely partner and thinking of things other than his stomach. This leads to marriage. After serving his time, he and his bride go on to lead honest lives.
