"At the Cromwell Arms, janitor Knute Olsen tries to enjoy his night off but is harassed by telephone calls from demanding tenants and an unsympathetic manager, Jenkins. Tenants Mrs. Van Allen and her daughter Jane plan Jane's wedding to the rich Robert Brewster III, whose mother owns the building, although Jane loves another man, Harry Smith. Brewster arrives at the Van Allen apartment and Jane is disgusted by his drunken, nonsensical behavior. After Olsen helps Harry arrange a secret rendezvous with Jane, Jane gets angry when Harry insists that only her mother impedes their union and says she never wants to see him again. Mrs. Van Allen then orders Olsen to see Brewster to a cab, but Brewster instead drags Olsen with him to a speakeasy. Brewster approaches Virginia West, and when her protective brother, notorious gangster Joe 'Monk' West, arrives, he erroneously assumes that Brewster is Virginia's secret lover, 'Dapper' Danny Reynolds. Although he is disgusted that Virginia would be in love with an upper class playboy, Monk orders Brewster to marry her the next day and threatens to kill Olsen if he does not bring Brewster to City Hall at four o'clock. The next day at the West home, Virginia introduces Monk to her new husband, Danny. Happy that Virgina is married to Danny, who is also a criminal, Monk schemes with his brother-in-law to rob guests at Brewster and Jane's wedding, the anouncement of which Monk read in the newspaper that morning. They send their henchmen, Al and Elbows, to impersonate policemen and pretend to watch the presents. As the wedding guests arrive, the intoxicated Brewster realizes that he cannot marry both Virginia and Jane and offers to commit suicide to save Olsen from Monk's wrath when they fail to appear at City Hall. Olsen relates his predicament to Al and Elbows when they arrive, and they offer their protection. Brewster makes desultory attempts at suicide throughout the pre-nuptial proceedings, and a now grief-deranged Harry tells Olsen that he will kill Jane, Brewster, Olsen and himself if Olsen cannot prevent the wedding. While Olsen saves Brewster, who is about to jump from the building's roof, Monk and Danny arrive for the robbery. When Harry threatens to kill Brewster, Brewster turns the gun on himself, saying that he cannot marry Jane because of the scandal surrounding his potential bigamy. Meanwhile, Olsen locks Danny and Monk in another room and relates his actions to Al and Elbows, who proceed to hold up the guests. A fight ensues between the guests and the thieves with Olsen stealing a gun and saving the day before detectives arrive and take the crooks away. Jane is unperturbed and sits on Harry's lap in her bedroom during the entire fiasco. Brewster stays contentedly drunk, while his mother fires Jenkins and makes the capable Olsen the apartment manager"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Above the clouds, Dan Cupid exits a heart-shaped door in his house. While sitting on a cloud and speaking to the audience, he shoots arrows into a couple sitting together in the world below on a park bench, who then emphatically embrace. Cupid then relates the difficulty that he is having in getting his arrows into a young playboy, Ronnie Gregory, whose wealthy uncle Ellery is the president of a successful brassiere factory. At the suggestion of Ellery's fianceĢe, Jane Holman, angry that Ronnie earlier resisted her advances, Ellery stops Ronnie's income. As Ronnie and Ellery argue about women, Ellery's hotel maid, Looloo Blake, listens, and when Ronnie spouts his belief that he could take any girl and, with a little transforming, marry her into the social register, Looloo begs him to use her to perform the feat. Ellery challenges Ronnie and offers to restore his income if he succeeds, but Ronnie, thinking Looloo to be extremely unattractive, refuses. However, when Ellery's stuck-up son Gerald, whose only pleasures are collecting stamps and eating raw carrots, refuses to talk to his father on Ronnie's behalf, Ronnie vows to marry him to Looloo. With eight of his girl friends, Ronnie forms a 'get-your-man' committee to give Looloo training in clothes, conversation, dancing, poise, 'handling bad boys, ' manners, and other needed skills. Two months later, as Ronnie is nearly overcome with bills from the experiment, Looloo, who has fallen in love with him, prepares to meet Gerald at a fashion show, which he attends for business reasons. As Ronnie shows Looloo how to kiss, Cupid encourages the couple, but their passionate rehearsal is interrupted by Looloo's beau Maxie, a stupid, but likable taxi driver whom she has tried to disinterest. At the fashion show, according to plan, Looloo piques Gerald's interest by talking about her stamp collecting, but he fails to succumb when she tries to romance him with a song and a kiss. However, when she then brandishes a raw carrot and admits, 'they're my weakness, ' Gerald, bowled over that her weakness is his weakness, kisses her passionately and repeatedly until the bench on which they sit topples over. He then proposes that they get a bunch of carrots and make a night of it. Hurt at Ronnie's lack of interest in her, Looloo vows to find his weakness. After the women give Looloo tips on how to get Gerald to propose, she uses them, to no avail, on Ronnie, whose only concerned is that he is going bankrupt because of her. Because Gerald, due to his infatuation, lets business slide, Ellery follows him to Looloo's apartment. Thinking that Ronnie was jealous of Jane's attraction to Ellery, Looloo then gets Ellery to fall for her. Looloo tells Ronnie that his uncle is in love with her, hoping that he will confess that he loves her, but Ronnie is thrilled that Ellery is no longer interested in Jane. Furious now with all men, Looloo tells both Gerald and Maxie to get out of her life. In tears, Gerald finds Maxie, also crying, on the running board of his taxi and asks for advice on how to commit suicide. Maxie takes Gerald to Gordoni, a gangster, and instructs Gerald to hit him, but Gordoni only slugs Gerald back, and he falls on Maxie. The two men cry together on the running board, and when they discover that they both love the same woman, Gerald, to comfort Maxie, states that things are not so bad and suggests 'let's be gay.' Meanwhile, Ronnie has not been able to eat or sleep, but he will not listen when his valet suggests that he is fond of Looloo. Looloo gently tells Ellery that she cannot marry him because of the difference in their ages and packs to leave, but Ronnie, who has decided to go to work for his uncle, now asks Looloo for a position working nights as her 'personal slave.' He admits that he loves her and asks forgiveness for having taken so long to find out. They kiss and Cupid, rejoicing, winks at the audience and warns them that he will do the same 'to you and you and you'"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

His first day out in New York City, Peter witnesses an auction of unemployed workers. When a licentious man bids for pretty Joan Allen, Peter hires her to be his stenographer at fifty dollars a week. She then convinces him to hire Mme. Vivienne Pompadour, a retired stage actress who poses as her mother, as well. Peter invites the women to live with him in his Fifth Avenue mansion, and Vivienne schemes to get Peter to fall in love with Joan by staging a love scene from a play.

Eddie convinces Peter to start a soup kitchen, which is a huge success and helps Peter to win the loyalty of many of New York's poor. When $100,000 of Peter's cash is delivered from the bank to start a chain of soup kitchens, Vivienne, Doc and Eddie plan to steal it.

"'Brains' Stanley is a consummate and gleeful con artist. When he sees the beautiful Grace Clark in a limousine, he pretends to have been hit by her car in order to meet her, then tells her that he is a wealthy philanthropist. Grace and Brains fall in love and have an affair. After he pulls a con on gangster Labels Castell, then cheats his own partners, Driller and Mousey, out of their share. Brains plans to leave town. He confesses his true identity to Grace, who is unaffected by the revelation and joyfully accompanies him. Adopting the nicknames Pat for him, and Mike for herself, the couple swindle their way across the country, always just ahead of the police. Although Grace becomes disillusioned with Brains when he gambles away their earnings and shows no interest in marriage, she stays by his side. Finally, they settle in a small town in Oklahoma and become respectable citizens, operating a glass coffin manufacturing business with a partner. Brains proposes to Grace, and all goes smoothly until Driller and Mousey appear and demand the $20,000 that Brains previously took from them. Because Brains meanwhile discovers that his partner has skipped town with all their earnings, he plans to rob the bank, fearing that Driller and Mousey will kill him. Brains, Driller and Mousey take some apartment dwellers hostage in an apartment building across from the bank, and dig a tunnel to the vaults. One of the hostages, a pregnant woman, dies in childbirth because the gangsters refuse to allow a doctor in. Grace is overwhelmed by guilt, and upbraids the criminals for their callousness. When police arrive in response to a bank alarm, Driller suspects Grace of having turned them in, and attempts to kill her, but accidentally shoots Brains instead. Driller is then killed by the husband of the pregnant woman and Mousey is arrested. Brains dies in the prison hospital as a priest performs a long-awaited marriage ceremony with Grace"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
