When intellectual Beauregard Bottomley goes on a radio quiz show, he's out for more than personal gain: he wants to earn enough cash to take over its sponsor and put an end to such programs forever, for he regards them as a threat to American intelligence. He is well on his way to achieving his goal when the scheming president of the soap-company sponsor assigns a beautiful femme fatale to distract Beauregard from the task at hand.
