Journalist Elizabeth Lane is one of the country's most famous food writers. In her columns, she describes herself as a hard working farm woman, taking care of her children and being an excellent cook. But this is all lies. In reality she is an unmarried New Yorker who can't even boil an egg. The recipes come from her good friend Felix. The owner of the magazine she works for has decided that a heroic sailor will spend his Christmas on *her* farm. Miss Lane knows that her career is over if the truth comes out, but what can she do?
Dear Fans, Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan are spending a very merry "Christmas in Connecticut." The romancin's rosy and the fun's furious and everybody's going to be there! You're invited! Warner Bros. (The happy hosts) (original poster - written in script)

Yardley tells Sloan that Elizabeth's rival at another magazine has announced she is going to have a baby, and Yardley states that they have to beat her to the punch, as they will surely lose readership. Even Yardley can't do anything about nature- it still takes nine months to have a baby, so it would be impossible, even if Elizabeth conceived on the first night of marriage. Additionally, if they actually managed to have the baby before the woman at the rival magazine, it would naturally appear that Elizabeth had conceived before she was married. See more

I don't want anything to happen to that baby. It will ruin my circulation.
It won't do the baby no good, neither.
