Storyline

It's Tess' graduation day from "Miss Drakes School for Girls". During the choir's performance at the ceremony, Tess notices that her beautiful, divorcee mother, Louise Rayton Morgan isn't there. Louise, an editor for Modern Design Publication, is lying in Dr. Cannon's office from fainting due to being over-worked and stressed-out. At home after the graduation ceremony, Dr. Cannon has a talk with Louise's three daughters, Tess, Ilka and Alix. He tells them that their mother needs a vacation badly, but, the only way she can relax is if she goes without the girls. The girls agree, but, Louise is reluctant, but goes. The girls see their mother off on her one month Cuban cruise. When the girls get home they discuss their mother, and believe if they bring their father back home it will make their mom happy and healthy again. In reality, Louise has kept the truth about their father from them. Their father was actually a very uncaring man, who left them and left Louise to raise the girls on ... Written by Kelly

Too High Notes

Divorced soprano Jeanette MacDonald (as Louise Rayton Morgan) is unable to see eldest daughter Jane Powell (as Tess) graduate, in Technicolor, from "Miss Drake's School for Girls" due to feeling old and over-worked.

The "Three Daring Daughters" decide to bring their "no good" father back into the family, but MacDonald wants to wed pianist Jose Iturbi (as Jose Iturbi), instead...
