Ned Trumpet (Wallace Beery), the chief pilot of a Navy blimp, is given to weaving accounts of the fighting prowess of his non-existent son. His friendship with widow Maude Weaver (Selena Royle) and her son Jess (Tom Drake) in effect sets him up with a real family. Jess enters the service and goes on to sink an enemy submarine -- from a blimp. Having that real-life feat to brag about, Ned can at last quell all the longtime doubts of his friend Jimmy (James Gleason), and he decides to marry Maude. Bit-Part Alert: Watch for a young Blake Edwards, the future writer/director of 10, S.O.B., and Victor/Victoria, as a flier.
