New York City in the 1930s: When the court reporter of the Morning Post gets drunk, his colleagues persuade the naive and unsuccessful newspaper poet Gil Taylor to write the court report instead. A poor girl is accused in the court, because she walked homeless through the city, and could be sentenced to a prison sentence. The romantic Gil has pity with the attractive girl and states that he is her fiancée, but the judge remains skeptical and arranges that the complete strangers get married right now in order to prove that they are really a couple. Gil and the girl agree.
