Hollywood Forever page 13

In this film eight scholars working on an encyclopedia get stuck on the letter S when they discover that their collection of SLANG terms is at least 20 years outdated. This is Gary Cooper's area of expertise. He is selected to solve the problem.

He is a naive, stuffy professor. Still he hits the streets, subways and nightclubs to find and organize a crew that becomes his source of current slang. He does this through round table discussions. Barbara Stanwyk is recruited because of her cynical and streetwise vocabulary.

However, she decides to move in to the professors' huge grant-supported home so that she can dodge the police. The antics from here on are nonstop.
