Working girl/telephone operator Janie is engaged to conservative, dull, but very reliable car salesman Tom, who offers her a safe, stable marriage. Then she meets unconventional slacker Harry, a philosophical car mechanic without much ambition although she does hear bells when they kiss. Through Harry, the fickle Janie meets Dick, a handsome and charming millionaire playboy, who embodies her greatest romantic fantasies, and after a champagne-filled overnight flight to Chicago, she thinks she's met her dream man, but has she?

George Murphy, in his autobiography, said alternate endings were filmed showing Janie marrying each of her three suitors. Murphy claimed that most test audience members wanted Janie to marry his character, Tom, the hard-working automobile salesman, but it was ultimately decided Harry, the free-spirited auto mechanic, would win the lady's hand. Murphy was miffed at his character's loss and compared Harry unfavorably to the "hippies" of the 1960s. See more
