Okay, the movie...
While pursuing an eloping heiress, reporter Bill Bennett (Lane) stumbles across a small town marriage license clerk named Jud Parker (Moore). Parker claims that no couple that he has issued a license to has ever gotten divorced. Bill plays up this angle in his newspaper story and soon the small town is a booming elopement destination. Bill falls in love with Parker's beautiful daughter, Nancy (Lester), but she already has a boyfriend, plus she is not sure of Bill's motives or character. Also, there are gangsters, an illegal casino, corrupt politicians and Parker is framed for murder.
Familiar face: Jack Carson as 'Candid', Bill's photographer.
