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 »
The film begins with a small but very rich town all abuzz because a story appears in the newspaper that one of their servants has written a "tell all" novel. Most of the folks are worried that their own secrets and peccadilloes will be exposed, so everyone seems to be keyed up to say the least.
The film then centers on a particular household where Marjorie Main and Marsha Hunt are employed. Unbeknownst to all, sweet Marsha is the author, but no one seems to suspect her in particular. Later, when her boss' son (Richard Carlson) returns from an anthropological expedition, a MAJOR romantic mess is revealed and much of the rest of the film is a cute romantic comedy where it soon is apparent that these two have some unfinished business! The writing, acting and pacing of this little film are all excellent--resulting in a very nice and very watchable film. Considering the modest expectations of this low-budget film, it is a considerable success.
