In San Francisco, in the spring of 1945, United States Navy lieutenant Dudley Briggs ( Ray Milland ) is promised a promotion by ship’s Captain Hornby ( James Hornby ) and a two-week leave if he can procure a magnum of French champagne before the launching of the U.S.S. Vengeance the next morning at dawn.
In a liquor shop, Dudley loses the last magnum in the city to a beautiful young woman named Margie ( Olivia DeHavilland ), who is about to be married to Army lieutenant Torchy McNeil ( Sonny Tufts ), an Oregon football star, and who wants it as a centerpiece for their upcoming wedding reception.
Dudley then tries numerous attempts to steal the magnum back from her.
