When Mary Peppertree (Deanna Durbin), a White House telephone operator, breaks her engagement to marry Phillip Manning (Jeffrey Lynn), an attorney for the Justice Department, it causes a stir and encourages two new admirers, David (Don Taylor) and Tom (Edmond O’Brien), to pursue her. Mary’s romantic entanglements soon become the talk of the White House and even the President of the United States and four Supreme Court justices try to play Cupid for her in this screwball comedy which marked Durbin’s final screen appearance. The cinematography by four-time Academy Award nominee William H. Daniels (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof ) and such songs as "Moonlight Bay" and "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" provide additional distinction.
