      Clarence Day (William Powell), a New York financier, rules his family with the iron fist. The 4 sons will not take a step without the approval of their dominant father, and the life of the household revolves around his word.

      or so


      it seems.

      There is one person who can afford the liberty to disagree with Clarence Day, question his decisions and even contradict him - his wife Vinnie (Irene Dunne).

      We get to see just how strong her position is when she discovers that Clarence has never been baptized.

      and not at all compatible with his station.

      He refuses to believe that he will not be allowed to heaven “on a technicality.

      Clarence, for example, remarks that heaven strikes him as a “very unbusinesslike

      place” (to which his wife replies, “And it would be just like you to try to run it.

      ”).

      The struggle goes on.

      Clarence invents reasons and excuses why he cannot be baptized, and Vinnie removes them one by one.

      Eventually, Mr.

      Day has do relent.
