Plot Summary
Eva Lovelace (Susan Strasberg) has more confidence than talent, but the New York City newcomer believes her inexperience won't keep her from the stage. In this "Morning Glory" update, Eva talks her way into a production by Broadway impresario Lewis Easton (Henry Fonda), but bad acting leads to her ouster. Playwright Joe Sheridan (Christopher Plummer) gives her a second chance when actress Rita Vernon (Joan Greenwood) quits his show, and Eva surges toward stardom and romance.
