Jane Palmer is suspected of insanity after squandering her inheritance, and a young psychiatrist, Dr. Enright, is assigned to her case. Posing as her chauffeur, he drives her out west to her rich grandmother, from whom Jane hopes to recoup her fortune. The grandmother refuses her money, but allows her to work the family's played-out gold mine. As part of his treatment, Enright "salts" the mine with gold and, unintentionally, brings on a gold-rush and a group of government assayers. They find the mine rich in mercury ore and new riches for Hope, who is now more interested in her "chauffeur."Written by

Irene Dunne is a "Lady in a Jam." She has gone bankrupt and her possessions are being sold in an auction to pay her debts. But she is oblivious to her plight and doesn't take anything serious. Her lawyer or accountant, played by Eugene Palette, has been after her about her inevitable situation. But she has done nothing to help herself, but buy stuff on whims. When Eugene goes to a psychiatrist (Patric Knowles) to get her some help, things get crazy. The situations from then on feel contrived and unrealistic, but at the same time it's bizarre enough to keep you interested, like a car wreck. It's not really that funny, but is only fairly amusing and is a disappointment as one of Irene Dunne's films. She is convinced by Patric to go back home, where her eccentric grandmother and ex-beau (Ralph Bellamy) live. "Lady in a Jam" is only for die-hard Irene Dunne fans, and even those will be only modestly entertained.
