During the evening, Marvin and Dee Dee fall in love, but when he finds out she's really a millionaire heiress, he gets upset that she lied and takes off without her.

Review - You Gotta Stay Happy

The ending is a little flat, but most of the movie is fun in a lighthearted way. I'm not a big fan of Joan Fontaine, but she does OK here.
