Only angels have wings: Story of the men working for a South American mail and freight business in the 1930s. They are trying to win a lucrative government contract to carry mail, and must perform satisfactorily despite bad weather, injuries, poor cash flow and a woman trying to win the boss's heart.
The talk of the town: A suspected murderer hides out with an unsuspecting professor and his landlady, and tries to convince the legal-minded professor there is a human side to all laws. To further complicate matters, the young woman falls in love with both men.
His girl Friday: A newspaper editor and his ex-wife star reporter exchange verbal insults in his effort to keep her on the job by offering her a prison story scoop.
