Brantley Foster, a well-educated kid from Kansas, has always dreamed of making it big in New York.

On his first work day in New York, he is fired in a hostile take-over and learns that jobs - and girls - are hard to get.

Brantley soon gets a job in a company mail room and meets Christy Wills, who happens to be one of the top executives.

Brantley sees how poorly the company is being run and decides to create a position under the name Carlton Whitfield.

Soon things get unexpectedly out of hand, not in the least because of his aunt, his girl and leading a double life.
