William Powell and Myrna Loy star in a screwball romantic comedy about a small town businessman who recovers from a years-old case of amnesia, remembers his former of life as a con man...and realizes that his town--and his wife--are perfect marks for a swindle. Alone on a cruise, Larry Wilson (Powell--The Thin Man films) knocks his head. He returns home as his former self, George Carey, now pretending to be Larry Wilson--and plotting to con the people of his small town out of their money. But his wife, Kay (Loy--The Thin Man films), who was about to ask for a divorce, is attracted to his newly amorous and somewhat devious personality. She is even more interested when she discovers his true self as a con artist, and their romance reignites. But when George again bumps his head, he reverts to his identity as the dull, respectable Larry...or is this just another con by the master swindler George?
