Movie Info

A struggling composer must abandon his classical music and begins writing more popular jazz compositions to survive. He hates this and so, though he loves an impoverished painter, decides to marry a wealthy girl for her money. He proposes. She accepts. This hard-hitting satire chronicles the devastating effects of her acceptance. The night he pops the question, he has a terrible nightmare in which he has become an artless capitalist speaking into an enormous telephone. All the women are dressed in dollar signs. He then finds himself in a bizarre courtroom forced to face his crimes.
