Horace (John Beal) and Millie (Wanda McKay) just got married and now they want to spend a night on the town (New York City that is) before Horace has to report for duty in the army the very next day. Then though they find a body first in their bed then in their trunk, but everytime they have managed to get the hotel detective Callahan (Warren Hymer), the body is gone, and he already thinks they are looney. But of course there really was a body in their room which two gangsters (Ernie Adams, Lynton Brent) have hidden there, the body - that of gangster Luke Keesler (Pierce Lyden) was just not yet dead and ultimately managed to get away.

Due to an accident, eventually Horace gets locked inside the trunk, and the trunk gets delivered to the gangsters' boss, bigshot Frankie Saxon (Tom Neal), who now thinks Horace is Duke, and he tries to torture the whereabouts of whatever loot out of him. Horace manages to escape though, but ends up in a prison cell since he was running the streets in his pajamas. Eventually, his wife and Callahan pick him up, but almost immediately, Horace and Millie are abducted by Frankie's man again, and after they manage to escape (again) for a third time. It's only then that Frankie and his men realize Horace isn't Duke, but somehow he and Millie get out of that jam by having Frankie's house raided - even if Frankie and his men escape ...

Back at the hotel, Horace and Millie want to spend what's left of their wedding night with each other, when they discover the body of Duke in their closet, only this time he's really dead. Soon enough, everybody shows up at their room, hotel detective Callahan, Frankie and his gang, and the police, led by sergeant Haggerty (J.Farrell MacDonald), whose nerves are dangerously strained by the whole affair.

Of course everything ends happy, all the baddies get their just desserts, and Horace and Millie get their sleep ... but only a few minutes, then they have to get up again so Horace won't miss his call to arms ...


Not a bad little wartime comedy that though obviously produced  on the cheap is fast-paced enough and holds enough energy to keep the audience interested in the onscreen goings-on. Not a masterpiece maybe, but entertaining throughout.
