The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

When an aging minister dies after being replaced, his daughter, Florence Fallon (Barbara Stanwyck), loses her faith in God. Spotting a chance to make a little cash, opportunistic Bob Hornsby (Sam Hardy) convinces her to start her own church. Fueled by her anger, Fallon opens the Temple of Happiness, where she stages daily miracles in exchange for cash. Word of her powers soon reaches the ears of blind ex-aviator John Carson (David Manners), and, when Fallon meets him, she falls madly in love.
