A girl visits her relatives who she thinks are wealthy, not knowing they are penniless. Judy Gibson and her fiancé, Dick Nichols, are taken in by a number of rogues at a New York mansion they pretend to own, which actually belongs to an imprisoned gangster. They attempt a scam with $200,000 in loot found hidden at the crook's home, but Judy ultimately gets the better of all.



The film was originally known as Broadway Baby. Columbia bought the rights to the script in November 1946 and assigned it to producer Sam Katzman.[3]

This was the second movie Porter made for Katzman, following Betty Co-Ed. Filming started on 20 January 1947.[4]
