A super-efficient secretary at a department store falls for and marries her boss, but finds out that taking care of him at home (and especially his spoiled-brat daughter) is a lot different from taking care of him at work.

Brillant pianist Larry Addams allows his frustrated ambitions to ruin his life and commits suicide, leaving his wife, Lee, and two small children, Penny and Chase, under the stigma of disgrace. Lee takes over and devotes her life to paying off Larry's debts and raising her two step-children. Prior to her marriage, Lee had turned down the proposal of Chris Matthews, wealthy ship builder and college friend of Larry's, but he had remained as a true friend to both. On the night of the suicide, Lee and Chris had attended a dinner party together and, horrified and shocked at the death, Lee sends Chris away, and for ten years does everything possible for the children to make up for the loss of their father. Bewildered by some of the strange stories concerning her father, the grown-up Penny (June Allyson) questions Lee and her brother Chase. Later, Penny meets and falls in love with Chris, not realizing he is the man Lee gave up. Written by

This is one of her greatest movies but there is only one problem "You Can not Purchase it Anywhere" It is not for sale for in home all the time enjoyment. I have watched this movie with tears in my eyes for seeing a young child have so much love and admirations for another is heartfelt and amazing. Sad for this is one movie many would like to own and be able to watch at anytime. Nothing like the good old days where love was real and family really existed. This is something that is seems to be almost totally gone. Just try to watch this movie believe me it is worth going out of your way to watch and to buy if ever available to the public
