Political kingmaker Joe Quinn (Walter Connally) attempts to elevate his daughter's ambitious suitor, George Willoughby (Reginald Denny), into the the higher echelons of politics by getting him elected to Congress. His daughter , Paula Quinn (Ida Lupino) is not interested in her father's hand-picked choice of Willoughby as her husband. Willoughby is duly elected but Paula chooses weatherman/inventor Kirk Duncan (Ralph Bellamy) as her husband.Written by

When a weather balloon clunks her on the head, an irate Ida Lupino goes to give a piece of her mind to meteorologist Ralph Bellamy. They immediately fall in love, but when her politician father tries to cut a deal with him -- election day's weather will affect the voter turnout, so he wants to know what deals to cut in advance -- Bellamy walks off in dudgeon, leaving Miss Lupino thinking he hates her. She returns to the arms of would-be congressman Reginald Denny. So Bellamy gets drunk and devises a dastardly scheme.
It's a rote romantic comedy, even though all hands give it a go. I was so irritated that I noticed that the sidecars Bellamy specifically gets drunk on don't look like sidecars -- too dark for the orange juice they contain. Although director Alfred Green runs this through at speed, there's little to make this more than a mediocre programmer.
