Synopsis
Cartoonist Stanley Ford, a confirmed bachelor, attends a party one evening... and is bewitched by a blonde Italian knockout who pops out of a cake. Then he does a very stupid thing. He marries her on the spot. Though his new wife is a happy homemaker, a man's man like Stanley has no stomach for domestic bliss. When his attempts at separation fail, he gets an idea. Known for always acting out his hero's scenarios before putting ink to page, he stages her murder and sketches a cartoon based on the scheme. When his wife sees the funny pages, she is frightened and vanishes. Mission accomplished. Not so fast, however, as the police appear and now want to ask him a few questions about his wife's whereabouts...
