The upper class Pringles and middle class Fosters are two families living in Santa Barbara. Among widowed businessman Lucien Pringle's interests are a bank and a radio station, these and his other business interests which make him largely an absent figure from his children's lives. Melvin Foster owns and operates a seafood packing plant, it an offshoot of his days as a fisherman. Unlike Lucien, Melvin is an active part in his family's life. Sixteen year olds Judy Foster, Ogden Pringle (more casually called Oogie) and Oogie's sister Carol Pringle are seniors at the local high school, they who have known each other all their lives. Judy, the school's songbird, and Oogie, conductor of the school's orchestra, are musical collaborators and consider themselves more than just friends, while Judy and Carol are best friends, although Judy and Oogie are oblivious to Carol's actions being in her own best interest often at their expense.

[In the dance scene early on, all of the girls are in long dresses. One of the background girls is clearly wearing what look like fuzzy bedroom slippers.] Posted by a Millennial who hasn't a clue as to woman's styles of the early 20th century. While barely seen, the shoes are black flats, unusual for a formal dance but definitely not slippers. See more »
It's a very nice little swing number, Judy. But I don't know if it's really appropriate for a High School dance.

I found it interesting that MGM's two leading sopranos (Kathryn Grayson and Jane Powell) performed the same song ("Love is Where You Find It")in two different movies that were released in 1948. I had first heard the song sung by Kathryn Grayson in "The Kissing Bandit" and the first thing I thought of was how the song would sound if sung by Jane Powell. When I saw "A Date with Judy" 5 days ago for the first time, I got my answer! I thought Elizabeth Taylor was a hoot as a sultry "come-hither" sophisticated type against Jane Powell's perinnial "good girl". It's a wholesome corny flick, but boy, they don't make them like that anymore! As always I wish there had been more singing. Can anyone tell me where to get song lyrics from all the great old MGM musicals. I would love to have the words to "Love is Where You Find It".
