Brief Synopsis

18-year-old Angela (Susanna Foster), reared in a New England town by her Aunt Betsy (Dorothy Peterson), receives an inheritance which she uses to go to New York, ostensibly for voice training, but she is pursuing Major Hilary Jarret (Patric Knowles), an Army surgeon with whom she has become infatuated. Her departure depresses her childhood friend Jimmy Plum (Donald O'Connor.) Dr. Plum (Jonathan Hale) devises an errand on which to send his love-sick son to New York, where Jimmy discovers Angela thinks she is Jarret's fiancee. Jimmy also renews acquaintances with a group of show people, including Sally McGuire (Peggy Ryan), who attempts to console him. Jimmy meets Jarret's divorced wife, Harriet (Louise Allbritton), famed photographer. Jimmy engineers a meeting of Jarret and Harriet with Angela present, which forms the beginning of an understanding that Jarret is not for her. Jimmy is inducted into the Army.
