A hit Broadway show is opened up in a big way by Keaton, with unforgettable sequences in church and on hillside. Stockbroker Keaton has gone broke, so a will reading is just in time—literally, since it requires his being married by day’s end or forfeit millions. But when sweetheart Ruth Dwyer feels he’s botched the proposal, propriety goes out the window. Future star Jean Arthur has a bit part as Keaton’s receptionist.
