"Dashing film star Brooks Mason and shy pineapple plantation owner George Smith meet in Hollywood, and upon discovering that they are exact doubles, they hit upon a cunning scheme. Brooks will assume George's identity and return to Honolulu for a restful vacation, while George will fulfill his yearnings for glamor and sophistication by substituting for Brooks on a personal appearance tour. George leaves for New York with Brooks's unsuspecting manager, Joe Duffy, as Brooks boards the boat bound for Hawaii. On board he meets musical performers Millie de Grasse and Dorothy March, and while Brooks romances Dorothy, George is mobbed by his fans and is hospitalized in New York. Complications ensue as the ship docks in Honolulu and Brooks meets George's reluctant fiancée, Cecelia Grayson. George has asked Brooks to romance Cecelia for him, and the lady is soon delighted to discover that her slow suitor has finally developed some love techniques. Cecelia's father Horace, however, is certain that George has stolen the $50,000 that he gave him to close a business deal, and has Brooks arrested. Despite Brooks' protests that he is not George Smith, he is jailed, but then released when Jones, the man with whom George closed the $50,000 deal, appears. Meanwhile, Brooks's romantic involvement with Cecelia perplexes Dorothy, who was sure he was in love with her. Brooks's courtship proves a little too successful when Cecelia announces their wedding plans, but everything is straightened out when George flies in from New York just in time to take Brooks's place at the altar, thus allowing Brooks to reconcile with Dorothy"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
