Sandwiched between the gloomy Edward, My Son and the adventure King Solomon’s Mines, this comedy illustrates Kerr’s lighter side. After inheriting a considerable Texas ranch, Londoner Alison Kirbe finds herself courted by a variety of suitors aboard the ship to America—including a gambler looking for a wealthy wife to pay off his debts and a tycoon whose wingman tries to keep away the gold diggers. Turns out, Alison doesn’t want either one!
