Noted psychiatrist Dr. Aaron Sylvester has Hollywood star Carol Corliss as a patient. The beautiful blonde has developed such a phobia toward the large crowds of her adoring fans that she goes around disguised as a buck-toothed, horn-rimmed, homely brunette or wears a veil over her face to mask her identity. The doctor prescribes a vacation to a mountain lake cabin as part of her cure and asks young outdoorsman Emory Muir to accompany her and act as therapist. Muir is not impressed by celebrity, especially hers, and seems more interested in sport fishing and photography. Even when Carol metamorphosizes from her ugly duckling persona back to Hollywood princess, he remains unimpressed. To complicate matters, Carol's frequent movie co-star, ham actor Jay Holmes, has arrived on the scene to profess his love to her. Written by
Most critics agree that it is in this film that Ginger Rogers achieved solo movie stardom. Her studio, RKO, tried to insure this by not releasing any publicity stills of her with her buck-toothed, bespectacled, brunette persona. See more »

After being mobbed, a famous actress hides while seeking treatment for her new fear of crowds.
"In Person" with Ginger Rogers and George Brent is a sweet gem of a movie. Having never heard of this film I felt very lucky to come across it while channel surfing. However, I did miss the last half hour due to an obligation. I found the movie to be surprisingly charming even though somewhat predictable. This is very early Ginger in full flavor. George Brent plays the perfect leading man.
A beautiful famous actress assumes a plain Jane disguise while she seeks treatment for her fear of crowds. The handsome playboy is the reluctant "just what the doctor ordered". To her dismay, she believes he is falling for plain Jane, while she is falling for him.
