Preston Sturges

Jimmy McDonald, a clerk at the Baxter Coffee Company, refuses to marry his sweetheart, Betty Casey, until he prospers. To realize his dream, Jimmy, an inveterate contest entrant, submits a slogan to the Maxford Coffee Contest. Three of his friends, Tom, Dick and Harry, decide to play a practical joke on him by making up a phony telegram informing him that he has won the $25,000 first prize. Jimmy, Betty and the entire office start to celebrate and Jim telephones his mother with the good news. Mr. Baxter, thinking that Jimmy's ideas must be good, promotes him to the advertising department. But Mr. Maxford appears, tears up his check and denounces Jimmy.
