I can't face my holiday in South America! Young lady - you go instead!
Characters
Avis Carroll; Don Ramon Corrida; Juanita Guardia; Roger Kingdom
Synopsis
An eccentric playboy millionaire insists that Avis, who works for the travel agency, take his ticket and go in his place to Santa Lucia to deliver a gift to a lady there. It seems too fantastic to be true, but he insists and seems to have an ulterior motive when he burns the receipt Avis had written for him. Avis wants to go to Santa Lucia because her former boyfriend had left her and was reported drowned there. However, when she arrives, she discovers that Roger is alive and lives as a ragged, drunken beach-comber.
