Plot Summary
When a touring swing band arrives in her small town, Connie Ward (Ann Rutherford) falls hard for trumpeter Bill Abbot (George Montgomery) and decides to marry him on a whim -- since the band is leaving as quickly as it arrived. Quite unprepared for her new lifestyle, Connie struggles to adjust to the constant travel from one town to another, and also to the pettiness of the other musicians' wives. Eventually, the marriage and the band break up, but Bill is determined to make it all right again.
