Conceited singer Garry Mitchell refuses to renew his radio contract, so agent Doug Blake decides to find a new personality to replace Garry. In New York, he finds Martha Gibson, a single mother with a great voice. He arranges for her to move to Hollywood, but then has a problem trying to sell her to the show's sponsor. Doug tries every trick he can think of to make Martha a star, and as the two work more closely, he falls in love with her. Complicating matters further is when Martha meets and becomes attracted to Garry. Written by

After nearly 10 years, Harry Warren
, on loan from MGM, returned to write new songs for a Warner Bros. musical.(Ralph Blane
was the lyricist.) For old time's sake, the score interpolated three Harry Warren
standards for Doris Day
to sing: "Nagasaki," lyrics by Mort Dixon
; "I'll String Along with You," original lyrics by Al Dubin
, "lullaby" lyrics by Ralph Blane
; and "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," lyrics by Johnny Mercer
. This film was a remake of Twenty Million Sweethearts
(1934), which had featured, among the tunes by Warren and Dubin, "I'll String Along with You," sung first as a Dick Powell
solo, then as a duet by Mr. Powell and Ginger Rogers
. For her disc on Columbia Records, Doris Day
teamed with Buddy Clark
to croon "I'll String Along with You." See more
During a montage showing Martha's rise to stardom, there's a shot of stacks of fan letters, all of them bearing the address of what turns out to be Martha's home address. Even in the far more innocent times in which the film was set, stars didn't publicly reveal their home addresses and virtually all fan mail would have been addressed to her movie studio or record label or simply "Hollywood."

No, look, you got me wrong, Little Red Riding Hood. I ain't no wolf.
Okay, but I'd hate to meet you in a forest on a dark night.
