In this romantic comedy, faded movie actress Laurine Lynne decides to take a trip to Europe rather than continue to be depressed by her lack of career momentum in Hollywood. She leaves a boyfriend, polo champion Ricky Preston and her loyal agent, Joe Craig in Hollywood, and travels to an unspecified region of Europe for a stay at a posh hotel. Accompanying her is her smart-aleck maid Trommy. While staying at the hotel, she is annoyed by a cheeky waiter, who, it is revealed, is actually Prince Rupert Heinrich Franz von Rentzau working incognito. Laurine is further annoyed to learn that back in Hollywood, her rival, Sandra Drew, has gotten the part she wanted due to the publicity surrounding her marriage to nobility. Laurine arranges to marry a nobleman solely because of his title, who turns out to be Prince Rupert. They honeymoon briefly and happily, but complications arise, and Laurine heads back to Hollywood and a replenished career. While working at Associated Studios, Laurine finds that Prince Rupert has come to join her in Tinseltown, and his excessive spending drives her to distraction. Joe, however, finds out that Prince Rupert is a good man after all, and Laurine really falls in love with him, deciding to abandon her screen career to be his wife.

Mary Callahan, sales-hostess in a fully-furnished model bungalow, has become so fond of the home that she wants it for her own. One morning she finds that an intruder has slept in the house all night. He is Jeff Langan, self-promoted super salesman...out of a job. A few evenings later, Jeff appears, seeking shelter from a driving rain, and he and Mary sit in the living room, listening to the radio and awaiting the end of the storm. The station is offering a contest promotion that gives $5,000 to the married couple writing the best letter explaining why they are the happiest married couple. Jeff and Mary decide to pretend they are married and send in a letter. A few weeks later Mary is notified their letter won and the donor will be dropping by their bungalow to give them the prize. Now all Mary has to do is find Jeff, who has been drifting from job to job, and then find a pair of kids to pose as their children...called the Little Darlings in the prize-winning letter...and a few other details to be handled before the donor shows up.

Dan Doolittle is a poor schmuck whose big talk usually gets him into trouble. After he is fired from his plumbing job, he saves Dolly Davis, who, grateful, promises to get him a job at the company where she works, Owl Taxi, which is owned by her father. That job is as the jack-of-all-trades in the garage, under the supervision of the garage foreman, whose job he expects to have within the week. But Dan becomes the bane of the foreman's existence, in part because Dan would rather spend his time with Dolly to who he is attracted. But after Dan is asked by the boss to drive Dolly to the taxi depot, Dan believes he can make his millions instead by buying a cab and starting his own taxi company. Interactions with Dolly's visiting brother - a hosiery salesman - who Dan mistakenly believes is Dolly's boyfriend, a pair of inflatable legs, and an angry foreman who was fired because of Dan's mistakes in the garage lead to one misadventure after another for Dan.

The Little Rascals (also known as Our Gang) is a series of American comedy short films that characterizes the adventures of a group of neighborhood children. The series is notable for depicting children behaving in a rather natural way, as opposed to imitating adult acting styles. The series was produced in the early 1900s and broke new ground by putting boys, girls, blacks and whites together without differentiation. The series is realistic in that the majority of the children were poor, and poverty was reflective of the time. The gang often encountered conflicts with pompous rich kids and intrusive adults. The Little Rascals contains the hilarious antics of Spanky, Buckwheat, Porky and the rest of Our Gang. The children in Our Gang experience many adventures including getting lost in a haunted house, racing homemade fire engines down perilous hills, and surviving a surprise visit from the famous Wild Man of Borneo.
