Barbara Stanwyck is Jean Harrington, a grifter who travels the world with her father (Charles Coburn), bilking the "sucker sapiens." She meets Charles "Hopsie" Pike (Henry Fonda), heir to the Pike's Pale ale fortune and snake-enthusiast returning from a year's expedition up the Amazon.
To get home, he boards the cruise ship Southern Queen, setting off quite a stir, especially among all the women on board who hope to catch his eye and marry into his fortune. Jean and her father and mentor, "Colonel" Harrington, immediately set their sights on Hopsie. He hasn't seen a woman in six months and quickly falls for Jean. But when she attempts to seduce Hopsie in order to fleece him develops into real love.
