Winning songs, lightning-fast dialogue in the Tracy-Hepburn
tradition, and a great plot are the delicious ingredients of this delightful tribute to 1930s screwball comedies.


New York City, 1939. 

There's a mystery at Bailey's restaurant, one of Gotham's top dining establishments, and it's up to Katharine Hawks, the New York Herald-Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning ace reporter, to solve it! 

J. P. Thompson, editor of the struggling Herald-Tribune is desperately searching for a way to increase circulation.

Across town, Stewart Bailey is simultaneously mourning the death of his father and preparing for his imminent wedding to socialite golddigger Tiffany Vandervanden. 

Stewart has just inherited his father's restaurant, the success of which was built on its famous soup du jour. 

There's only one catch: Stewart's father took the recipe with him to the grave, and Stewart, along with everyone else in the story, winds up searching wildly for the missing recipe. 

Editor Thompson decides he, too, must have the secret recipe to solve his paper's circulation problems.

Enter Katharine Hawks to save the day. 

Sent undercover as a waitress to Bailey's restaurant to find the recipe for the famed soup, Katharine winds up losing her heart to Stewart Bailey. 

Once she learns Stewart has lost the recipe, Katharine is in a real dilemma: Career or love?
