There are a handful of old movies with the same premise as this one, but few of them are as fast-paced and funny as the story of Jack Doe, a man on the way to closing a million dollar deal who gets amnesia and spends the next few weeks of his life chasing around the country trying to discover himself. The story will keep you entertained from the first frame right up to the last moment of discovery. We join Roger Pryor, who is Terry Dodd, in a Chicago cab heading for the airport for a trip to Pittsburgh. He offers the cabbie a hundred dollars if he will step on it and speed up a bit, and when the cabbie does speed up he gets a bit careless and has an accident, rolling over his magnificent 1936 cab. Our hero gets out of the cab and sits on the curb and discovers that he has no idea who he is or where he was going . . . except that he was in a hurry to take a trip somewhere, and he also discovers that he has ten thousand dollars cash in his pants pocket. He decides that he must have been in a hurry to reach the train station and once there buys a ticket for the next train . . . which happens to be heading to New York City. Once in the city our hero searches in vain for someone . . . anyone that might recognize him. He doesn't find anyone in the city who seems to know him, but he attracts the attention of a beautiful young heiress who soon falls in love with him. Her wealthy father will not allow them to marry unless our hero can discover who he really is within a week and he is a good person who isn't already married. Wendy Barrie, as the co-star heiress Jane Forbes, travels with him from city to city creating havoc so that the newspapers will print their pictures in the hopes of someone recognizing our leading man. Unfortunately the pictures always seem to show her legs but not his face, and no one anywhere seems to know our fellow. Finally they wind up in Chicago where the competitors of our leading man recognize him, and they want him to stay anonymous for one more day until they can close the million dollar deal instead of him. His competitors arrange to convince him that he is Dan Kelly, owner of a big Chicago nightclub called The Paradise Club. With the deadline for the deal fast approaching and our hero no closer to discovering his real identity and his girlfriend ready to head back to New York with her papa it looks like there won't be a happy ending to this mad-cap adventure. But of course if you've watched many old movies you know that just in the nick of time everything will fall into place and our leading man and his lady will discover the truth, close the deal and live happily ever after. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
