When the film begins, Evelyn (Linda Darnell) is being recognized nationally at the Teach of the Year...and promptly flips out. Soon she's in Reno...gambling and trying life on the wild side. Her foray doesn't last very long and soon she's accumulated a huge debt to the casino and Matt Braddock (Stephen McNally) proposes a way for her to settle the debt. She'll become the teacher for Mr. Braddock's daughter and soon the daughter finds Evelyn to be the perfect potential mother! This scheme is derailed slightly when Ms. Stoddard shows up...and she has her sights set on Braddock!
This is a nice little romantic film--light, fun and with a cute kid to round out the picture. Not a great romance but just the bill for a date night movie.
