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?

Late in the film Dick takes Janie to Chicago to see a play starring Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Lunt and Fontanne were the very couple who presented Ginger Rogers with her 1940 Academy Award for 'Kitty Foyle'. See more »
At one point, Harry tells Janie that there are just over 3,000 millionaires and that there are about 11,000,000 single women. They agree that her chances of marrying a millionaire are one in a million. On his previous statistics, the odds are actually about 1 in 3,500. See more »
Listen, when we get there, I want you and the girlfriend to climb right in that little ol' back seat. Just forget that I'm here. I don't want you to be conscience of my presence. You know what I mean?

Names in the opening credits first appear jumbled into nonsense anagrams, then fall to the bottom of the screen and bounce back up as the correct names. See more »
Ginger Rogers plays Janie, a girl who is not only incredibly beautiful (even as a brunette), sweet and charming. But a girl who has three of the lovliest men after her, She must choose between a millionaire, a car salesman and a mechanic, you'll never guess who wins. This film is filled with fun and sentiment from start to finish, Ginger is great as ever but she has her film stolen from her by the lovely and charming Burgess Meredith. Meredith is the strange mechanic, who loves nothing more than fun except Janie and will do anything to get either.
George Murphy is good in an early role as the car salesman and when He has to drive "prospective buyer" Harry (Meredith) and Janie to a lovers point the screen fills with anger. Dick is the millionaire and he remains pretty anonymous, with little charachterisation by alan marshall.
Overall this film is hopelessly enjoyable and hard to dislike
