Angela Twitchell is the daughter of a tooth-paste manufacturer, Rufus K. Twitchell, who has monopolized the business for many years that he has grown conservative, and his rivals have begin to cut into his sales. Angela wants to enter the business but he thinks women have no place in a man's world. Inventor, Elmer Niles, tries to interest Mr. Twitchell in his line of toothpaste with various cocktail flavors, but is shown the door. Angela sees the possibilities in the idea; while retaining ownership she licenses it to one of her father's business rivals under the stipulation she will go on the road for a year and sell the product. She steals her father's customers right out from under the nose of her father's best salesman, Pat O,Connor, whom she falls in love with. It's whoopee at night and all-business during the day. Claudette Ruggles, a drug-store owner, also has designs on O'Connor.

The American Airlines biplane Angela boards for Chicago is a Curtis T-32 Condor II, registration NC12390, a 12-passenger "luxury night sleeper" aircraft. Named "Condor 154", this plane also appears prominently in the Shirley Temple film Bright Eyes
(1934). It was painted dark blue with orange trim. See more
At about 38 and a half minutes into the movie, while Angela Twitchell and her mother are talking in the bedroom, her father's shadow can be seen standing outside the door for more than 15 seconds before he actually enters the room. This means that he should have heard their discussion, thus learning that his daughter is the saleswoman for the competition. See more
I've seen 'em come and I've seen 'em go. So, gather the rose buds while you may. I'll still be selling Twitchell's when the buyers have forgotten whether Schmidt's made toothpaste or sausage casings.
