Synopsis: Socialite Elvira Kent suspects her husband of fooling around with other women. When he announces he can't join her on their scheduled ocean voyage, she hires a nightclub singer, Georgia Garrett, to pose as her on the cruise. Elvira stays at a hotel near home so she can spy on her husband. She's unaware, however, that her husband has hired a detective, Peter Virgil, to keep an eye on her at sea. Of course, Peter doesn't realize that Georgia is not Mrs. Kent...

Mr. Kent was married.

Well, you've only been here

since 9:

He couldn't have gotten very far

in the story of his life.

Shall l announce you to Mich--?

l mean, Mr. Kent?

Never mind.

l'll just walk in on Mr. Ke--

l mean, Michael.


-Oh, hello, darling.

-Your hat's on crooked.

-it's supposed to be that way.

Oh, is it?

Looks very cute. Very cute.

We'll take care of that a little later.

Who was that you just drove up with?

l was hoping you wouldn't see me.

Well, if you must know,

it was an automobile salesman.

You looked so chummy,

could've sworn he was an old friend.

He was just showing me

how the car worked.

You didn't tell me

you were getting a new car.

You didn't tell me

you were getting a new secretary.

Where did she come from?

Oh, from the Acme Secretarial School,

l suppose.

By the time we're back from South America,

she'll be able to type with all 10 fingers.

Oh, South America.

-What's the matter, dear?

-Nothing, nothing.

Oh, excuse me.

-Mr. Kent, you wanted to see these.


Put them out on the whole chain.

l want everyone to smell good.

Yes, sir.

Michael, every time you say,

''Oh, uh, um'' like that...

...l know there's something on your mind

and not in your throat.

-What about our trip?

-Well, darling, this is it.

l'm afraid we're going

to have to postpone it again.

Postpone it? Why?

-Business. Something came up this morning.

-About 9:
00 this morning.

Yes, yes, about 9.

Phone call from the West.

Great chance for a merger.

Listen, marriage is a merger too, you know,

and a darned important one.

l know, l know.

lf we can grab

the Great Western Drug Company...

...there won't be a hot-water bottle

without our name on it.

That's a comfort.

Tell J.B. to put those

on a national network.

You wanted me to remind you
