Dreamboat synopsis

When Thornton Sayre's (Clifton Webb) career as a college professor is threatened by his previous life as a movie star, he and daughter Carol (Anne Francis) go to New York to stop actress Gloria Marlowe (Ginger Rogers), a former co-star, from airing his old films. Webb's sudden reappearance causes a public stir, and after Gloria and her agent fail to manipulate him, he takes his grievances to court. Meanwhile, Carol begins rethinking both her father's and her own low opinion of show business.
