Jean Simmons, Paul Douglas and Anthony Franciosa star in producer Joe Pasternak's delightful production which was called "the kind of movie audiences hunger for but all too infrequently get". Anne Leeds (Simmons) is a schoolteacher looking for part-time work. She lands a job as a secretary at a nightclub, working for two partners: Rocco (Douglas), a nice, decent type of guy who has Anne's best interests at heart, and Tony (Franciosa), a handsome swinger for whom Anne falls, much to Rocco's chagrin. Adding a bit of spice – and some musical entertainment – to the story are Joan Blondell, Julie Wilson, J. Carrol Naish, ZaSu Pitts and more in supporting roles.
