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
In the scene where carol dives into the lake, Ginger Rogers was extremely reluctant to do this because of the freezing temperature of the mountain water. The crew were actually putting their beer bottles into the lake to keep them cold. Despite her objections, the director made her jump in and swim under water. The bottoms of her two-piece swimsuit began to slowly slip down in doing so, but the camera was so far away it remained unseen. See more »
The funniest thing about this movie is Ginger Rogers' disguise: buck teeth and glasses, reminding me of Jerry Lewis in The Nutty Professor (1963). She's a famous actress who got a bad case of agoraphobia when she was mobbed by adoring fans. To get away, she practically invites herself to go with George Brent to a mountain cabin retreat after she overhears that he was going there. Once there the comedy is predictable and routine. You do get to hear Rogers sing three songs and do a neat tap dance, all very enjoyable, but not enough to make up for the flat script.
