Kay Allyn (Ann Sheridan) is the spoiled daughter of eccentric advertising tycoon John C. Allyn (Hugh O'Connell). To win a $5,000 bet with a friend, Kay must wed society boy Jack Pierson (William Hopper) before midnight on her 18th birthday. As Jack has no means of supporting himself, her father is not impressed, and tries to foil his daughter's plans with the aid of hobo Bruce 'Butch' Baeder (Craig Reynolds). Taking a shine to the young man, the tycoon creates a job for him as a radio copy man, and Kay eventually falls for him. An added attraction is that hobo Bruce turns out to be the son of a famous Boston advertising millionaire.


Critical reception

Allmovie wrote, "a few broad swipes at radio advertising aside, Footloose Heiress is as predictable as sunrise and sunset";[4] while Leonard Maltin wrote, "pretty funny screwball comedy bubbles along at a dizzy pace."[1]
