One day, Malcolm Trevor (Cary Grant), the wealthy owner of a milk company, hits Mickey with his delivery truck. Letty greedily tells Mickey to lie about how badly he is hurt so that they can get a large settlement. Unfortunately for Letty, the judge uncovers her scheme and rules that Letty is an unfit mother. Malcom and his wife, Alyce (Marion Burns), take Mickey into their home and become loving adoptive parents. With the help of an unscrupulous attorney, Letty then concocts a new plan to get both her son and the money. As she sees how happy her son is with Malcolm and Alyce, she must decide whether it is more important to become rich or to tell let her son have the good life that he deserves.moreless
