The Pooles are unable to have a baby after years of trying. They apply to the Rock-A-Bye Adoption Agency, and are assigned Miss Novick as an investigator. Through a farfetched mis-communication she gets a very bad impression of Augie Poole and indicates her report will be unfavorable. Through even more far-fetched circumstances, Augie is able to change Miss Novick's mind, and later comes to believe the baby she is carrying is his. Rock-A-Bye does find the Pooles a baby, and Augie is convinced it is Miss Novick's, and that he is the real father...so much so that his wife comes to believe it, too. She threatens to leave him, but all the misunderstandings are finally cleared up for a happy ending. Written by

Doris Day wrote that her manager/husband Martin Melcher was terribly concerned over the box-office failure of this film and It Happened to Jane (1959). Their failures caused Day to drop out of the Top Ten Box Office Stars. Day and Melcher had words about him hustling her into almost any film for the money instead of waiting to find good scripts that would have produced better results. See more »
The woman from the adoption agency describes the baby as having blonde curly hair. When we see him in the bassinet, he clearly has no hair. See more »

This film has an astonishingly ludicrous, unbelievable plot. Doris Day and Richard Widmark are unable to conceive while ol' reliable neighbor Gig Young (as Dick Pepper) has kid after kid, despite having (arguably) the biggest substance abuse problem on the block. With all the single beds and double shots, it's a wonder.
Anyway, an adoption agency finds a baby for the childless Day/Widmark pair. Mr. Widmark is convinced he actually fathered the child they find, during a drunken one-night-stand... It gets worse. Ms. Day recognizes the newly adopted baby as Mr. Widmark's, and storms out on her bicycle! The movie makes absolutely no sense. Day and Widmark are terrible parents. Widmark also sings, by the way, at a cocktail party and to the baby. Be warned! Won't reveal the film's climax, but it should be easy to guess
