June Cameron has written a best seller about spinsters: women are men's equals and don't need them for fulfillment. Through a series of errors and misunderstandings, the press believes she's married Tim Sterling, a university instructor she's just met. Her publisher wants to let the mistake go uncorrected for a few weeks so she can write a best seller about being married; Tim cooperates because, in hidebound academia, being married may help with a promotion. The flies in the ointment are June and Tim's instant enmity, Tim's stubbornness, and his girlfriend Marilyn, who may not let the charade play out. There's no way everyone can get what they want.

another mixed up Loretta Young love story from the 1940's
Loretta Young (Kismet, zillions of romantic stories on love & marriage) is successful author June Cameron, who gets tangled up with Dr. Sterling (Ray Milland - Lost Weekend, the Major and the Minor). He agrees to help her out of a jam, but of course, their "resolution" causes problems in his own life, and later, problems in her life. Supporting roles by Reginald Gardiner and also Gail Patrick. Many similarities here to the 1945 film "Christmas in Connecticut" with Barbara Stanwyck, but they credit different authors. Also similar to "Third Finger Left Hand".. (Lionel Houser wrote Christmas in CT.. and Third Finger..) Loretta Young always reminds me of Ann Marie from the TV show "That Girl" -- thru a series of misunderstandings she herself has caused, she drags everyone around her into this huge ball of confusion, and has to straighten everything out at the last minute. Silly but fun. This flick could have been an episode of "Three's Company".
