The staff at Tottney Castle are taking bets on whom the young lady of the manor, Alyce Marshmorton (Joan Fontaine), will wed. When she meets American song-and-dance man Jerry Halliday (Fred Astaire), footman Albert (Harry Watson) schemes to make the mismatched pair fall in love so he'll win the bet. A romantic farce written by British humorist P.G. Wodehouse and based on his novel, the film features the last songs written for the screen by George Gershwin, who died during filming.
