Socialite Elvira Kent suspects her husband of fooling around with other women. When he announces he can't join her on their scheduled ocean voyage, she hires a nightclub singer, Georgia Garrett, to pose as her on the cruise. Elvira stays at a hotel near home so she can spy on her husband. She's unaware, however, that her husband has hired a detective, Peter Virgil, to keep an eye on her at sea. Of course, Peter doesn't realize that Georgia is not Mrs. Kent... Written by

from MGM, but Metro's policy at the time was not to lend Miss Garland to other studios. Mary Martin
also had been in the running to play Georgia. Warners then acquired Betty Hutton
in a loan-out deal with Paramount, but before filming started, Miss Hutton had to bow out because of her pregnancy. See more
