The SS American is sailing between New York and England with a comically colourful assemblage of passengers.
Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try and win the favour of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka Public Enemy #13. Song, dance and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try and help Billy win the love of his life.
