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 »

terrific, underrated romantic gem!
30 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was delightfully surprised at how fresh this film is! Ginger Rogers shines and sparkles! The songs in this film are also excellent examples of Dorothy Field's work. The songs, with their intelligent lyrics and as-always-wonderful staging of Hermes Pan, more than make up for Ginger's somewhat flat voice (What happened? She's on key with Astaire...) And believe it or not, dull old George Brent even has a twinkle in his eye or maybe even two--not as good as his early 30's work, but the most lively I've seen him in any of his other films. The plot is typical screwball of the times; no worse, no better. Overall this film is well worth seeing for light, cheerful entertainment.
