This delightful love story delves into the adventures of the impulsive and rebellious socialite Ellie Andrews, who impetuously marries gold-digger King Wesley, but her wealthy father has it annulled. Tired of her father's control, she runs away, by diving off the family yacht in Miami and heads for New York. On the bus she meets street-smart reporter Peter Warne.
They end up traveling together as Warne hopes to get a great story, and Ellie needs his worldly help. Nearing New York, with their many adventures coming to an end, they find that they are reluctantly in love and afraid to admit it to each other. After she mistakenly thinks that Warne has run out on her, Ellie returns to King Wesley, but for how long?

Friz Freleng's unpublished memoirs mention that this was one of his favorite films, and that it contains at least three things upon which the character "Bugs Bunny" was based: - The character Oscar Shapely's (Roscoe Karns) personality - The manner in which Peter Warne (Clark Gable) was eating carrots and talking quickly at the same time - An imaginary character mentioned once to frighten Oscar Shapely named "Bugs Dooley."
