Description by OLDIES.com:
Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Barbara Stanwyck ("Double Indemnity") plays Valentine Ransome, a beautiful Texas heiress who finds herself competing with a gold digger for the love of a playboy. Herbert Marshall ("Trouble in Paradise") and Glenda Farrell ("The Talk of the Town") co-star in this enjoyable romantic-comedy.
In this screwball comedy, Valentine Ransome (Barbara Stanwyck) is an heiress who falls for Jonathan Blair (Herbert Marshall), a carefree playboy who owns part of a large steamship line. However, Valentine doesn't especially like Jonathan's brassy fiancÚ, Carol Wallace (Glenda Farrell), and thinks he needs to start taking a more serious attitude about his money and his investments. To teach Jonathan a lesson (and get closer to him in the process), Valentine arranges to buy enough stock in the shipping company that she's the majority owner, and begins giving him orders about how things should be done. Jonathan isn't about to stand for that, and set off for a cruise on one of his ships, with Carol in tow and every intention of having the ship's captain marry them. But Jonathan's sidekick Butch (Eric Blore) doesn't like Carol any more than Valentine, and seizes every available opportunity to throw a spanner into the works. The same year that the versatile Barbara Stanwyck starred in this comic trifle, she received an Oscar nomination for her dramatic work in the movie STELLA DALLAS.
