Plot Summary

Entertainer Jeannie Laird (June Haver) throws herself a housewarming party and invites her show business friends. But when smoke from a neighboring apartment disrupts their festivities, Jeannie storms over to share a piece of her mind. Instead of a villain, however, she finds handsome widower Bill Carter (Dan Dailey) and his son, Joe (Billy Gray) -- and her anger quickly turns to attraction. Unfortunately, the son's preoccupation with his mother's death impedes the adults' attempts at romance.
