Plot Summary
When department store clerk Polly Parish (Debbie Reynolds) finds an abandoned baby, she unwittingly falls victim to her gossip-crazed coworkers. Even store owner John Merlin (Adolphe Menjou) assumes the baby is hers, and then goes so far as to demand that his son Dan (Eddie Fisher) step in and "do the right thing." Caught up in the moment -- and eager to spend time with the hunky younger Merlin -- Parish plays along. As Parish and Dan grow closer, she struggles to keep the truth from him.
