June Cameron has written a best seller about spinsters: women are men's equals and don't need them for fulfillment. Through a series of errors and misunderstandings, the press believes she's married Tim Sterling, a university instructor she's just met. Her publisher wants to let the mistake go uncorrected for a few weeks so she can write a best seller about being married; Tim cooperates because, in hidebound academia, being married may help with a promotion. The flies in the ointment are June and Tim's instant enmity, Tim's stubbornness, and his girlfriend Marilyn, who may not let the charade play out. There's no way everyone can get what they want.Written by

If you have a number of these types of movies, they become more competitive. While this one is good in part, not a throwaway, neither is it particularly a keeper if you're short on space. Ms. Young does well enough with what she has to work with, Reginald Gardner the same, but Ray Milland disappoints here as some other places as well. He's better cool and collected, very effective in that, like in "Dial M for Murder." He just embarrasses me here with his contrived expressions, and I recall experiencing that with him previously in a comedy. So artificial, so put on, you wonder why they let it pass. There are good segments, but overall, I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this one.
