This modest Preston Sturges comedy stars Dick Powell as an office clerk dreaming of better things and Ellen Drew as his more pragmatic girlfriend. Powell convinces himself that his fortune will be made if he can win a slogan contest sponsored by a coffee company. Powells contribution: If you cant sleep at night, it isnt the coffee, its the bunk! Three of Powells fellow workers decide to have some fun with him; they fake a telegram which announces that hes won the contest. The deception snowballs to the point that even the head of the coffee firm (Raymond Walburn) labors under the misapprehension that Powell has won. When the painful truth is revealed, Powell finds himself broke (because of all the creature comforts hes bought) and jobless, but at least hes retained the love of his wife. A cute deus ex machina to the story appears in the person of William Demarest, the foreman of the jury that is judging the slogan contest.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
