One day while driving his cab, a woman in a wedding gown hops in and insists he leave as soon as possible. Soon, she tells the cabbie a story and he feels sorry for her and takes her home. Later, it turns out she wasn't exactly telling the truth...so Mary has a hard time convincing him of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Oddly, he then agrees to help her prove that she isn't a jewel thief...and his two friends help as well! Does any of this make sense? Not really...but Chester Morris, Fay Wray and the rest do a good job of putting over a silly plot and making it seem almost possibly plausible...maybe. Overall, a time-passer and a modestly enjoyable one at that.
