Cary Grant and Joan Bennett star in the fast-paced screwball comedy Wedding Present. Chicago newspaper reporters Charlie Mason (Grant) and Rusty Fleming (Bennett) never let a good story get in the way of a prank. Things change, however, when their editor(George Bancroft) quits and Charlie takes over his place. Returning from a months vacation, Rusty discovers fun-loving Charlie has become an unbearable tyrant. Disgusted by his behavior, Rusty leaves for New York where her hasty engagement to a stuffy author (Conrad Nagel) brings Charlie to his senses as he pulls out the stops to change her mind.
