Aboard the ocean liner S.S. American, evangelist-turned-nightclub singer Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England, where her friend, Billy Crocker, has stowed himself away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt. But there’s a problem: Hope’s fiancé, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, is on board, as well as Public Enemy #13 (Moonface Martin) and his sidekick Bonnie. With the help of some crafty disguises, tap-dancing sailors, and old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Moonface team up to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
