The town gossips are reporting that a household servant in exclusive Rocky Point is writing an expose of the colony. Mrs. Sophia Sommerfield is convinced it can't be either one of her maids, Martha Lindstrom or Mrs. McKessic, although, unknown to Sophia, she is totally unaware that her son, Jeff, is married to Martha. At the moment, Jeff wants a divorce so he can marry another woman. The book comes out and Sophia is relieved to find that Martha's book does not reveal Sophia's fondness for reading "true-confession" magazines, nor mention that Sophia's young daughter, Mirand, writers her club reports for Sophia. Other items are cleaned up, also. Written by

When Martha is drawing a face on the soaped window, in the long shot of her doing so it is quite simple, but in the next closeup shot the figure is much more complicated and complete as she's looking through it. See more »
Martha, you sly puss. All those secrets! All those guys! What a juggling act.
Wolfercooler? Not sure of the spelling, but since it was made up on the quick, guess it really doesn't matter. Great stuff. Anytime you see Miranda (Virginia Weidler) by any other name, you know there's going to be fun. Poor Sylvia. She would have her troubles snagging one, and now that she finally does Darn. Wonder where she went from there? Oh well, there are a lot of men that need managing out there.
We had all kinds of merry maids in this - a German wonder, the pert little minx, a couple of war horses like Ms. Main and even the wicked witch from Oz ("maid" Guinevere) (Margaret Hamilton).
Didn't Mrs. Jacel (Irene Cooper) resemble Hedy Lamarr, sitting there at the breakfast table in her peignoir? And who sort of slid out of the room when hubby mentions they didn't have any spicy secrets to worry about.
And Barry Nelson, just trying to make good here. His specialty seemed to be tugging at apron strings. Notice that?
"Mother knows best" says father Melville Cooper to daughter as Mom Byington feigns a fainting spell to withdraw from a dinner party disaster. Not long after, she really does faint with the next one. (Even the hostess with the mostest has her limits!) Great scene there around the table. Sara Haden, always interesting, very persistent in trying to get to the bottom of this telltale book business. Three-fourths are trying to open up the subject, with one-fourth trying to close it down. One has to wonder if there was any successful digestion that evening. (Didn't you hate to see all those squabs go to waste like that!)
How about the blonde trio with the revolving heads.
Why didn't that family have a snappy little dog getting underfoot in the middle of all the muddles? The only thing missing
