Cora Edwards also lives at the boarding house and is in love with Charlie, who, however, loves Katherine "Kit" Bowser, the daughter of Judge Horace Bowser. Tish and her cronies promote a romance between Cora and Charlie, but Cora decides it is Theodore "Ted" Bowser she loves and they are secretly married before Ted leaves for a training school in Toronto, learning to ferry planes to England. Charlie and Katherine also elope secretly. Cora, anxious to join Ted, borrows money from the church organ fund and leaves, telling no one where she is going. Tish takes the blame for the shortage.

LOVE Marj Main (Ma Kettle and The Women)& Aline MacMahon...Aline STOLE the show, which ain't easy to do with M Main in the film... MacMahon should have won an award for this one, but the film itself has some problems... Lots of weird jumps forward in time, with time gaps & plot filled in by fast talking on the part of the 3 gal-pals. This film also dealt with some big issues for its time, with that naughty ol film production code in force at the time... it takes place during WW II, so that figures into the plot. There IS some sorrow, pain, and loss in this one, but it ends on KIND of a happy note, like any good WW II flick. Guy Kibbee is the ornery old cantankerous grandfatherly judge, who gets his come-uppance, as he usually did. Fun to watch, but keep those expectations in check. Some silly mis-understandings, similar to an episode of Three's Company. (But I do love anything with M Main or A. MacMahon.)
