A fictionalized account of the creation of John Guedel's hit radio show PEOPLE ARE FUNNY.

Joe DeRita appears as a contestant sent out to Hollywood Boulevard to find four women with stocking runs longer than 6", and bring them back to the studio. Art Linkletter plays himself, the host of PEOPLE ARE FUNNY.

Rival radio producers John Guedel (Philip Reed) and Leroy Brinker (Ozzie Nelson) compete to find a new radio show that they can sell to NBC sponsor Ormsby Jamison (Rudy Vallee). Radio writer Corey Sullivan uses both producers for her own ends, although she's clearly in love with Guedel. While on vacation, Sullivan bumps into Brinker, and on the drive back to L.A., the two are stranded in a small town. There they meet local radio producer Pinky Wilson (Jack Haley), who's created a popular show based on parlor games and audience participation... PEOPLE ARE FUNNY. Corey pretends to fall for Pinky as a ploy to get him and his show to L.A., where Guedel and Brinker will fight over gaining rights to produce it for NBC.

The producer and director of this film is Sam White, younger brother of Jules and Jack.
