Mary Peppertree, a switchboard operator in the White House, is being courted by three men; Philip Manning, an attorney; Navy Lieutenant Tom Farrington, naval-aide to the President; and David Paxton, whose father owns an island in the Pacific. When the U.S. Navy negotiates for the purchase of the island for a base, David agrees to sell on two conditions - that Philip be made a judge in a court at least 1500 miles from Washigton, and that Lieutenant Farrington be given sea duty.

After seeing one of Deanna Durbin's movies on tv I decided to buy a video and chose this one for a start. As I love music anyways, you can't go wrong with any selection of hers, such a lovely singing voice, she does credit to any song. The story is well acted by each, and it has a quick wit with an interesting twist at the end. Also it's nice to see Harry Davenport in a film I hadn't seen before; he's been a reliable staple in many good movies of that era. It's entertaining and leaves you with a happy feeling after. We need not take life so seriously because after all it can be lighthearted and cheerful too. This film proves it.
