Jimmy Reeve has three wards, all pretty girls whose prize belongings he keeps in his safe. June Wynne, for example, has a pearl necklace locked in there. Her sister Frankie Wynne has a diary that is filled with personal thoughts so incriminating that she convinces her boyfriend, the aviator Peter Thurston, to steal it from the safe. Somehow he manages to steal the pearls instead, setting off a merry chase that takes the cast to the pier at Atlantic City. To make matters more complicated, two humbling crooks also try to break into the safe and are swept along in the chase.

Trivia & History

"High Hat", "'S Wonderful" and "Tell the Doc" found on the original London cast recordings all contain additional lyrics not used in the New York production. There is no evidence these lyrics were written by Ira Gershwin.
