Plot Summary

When Alex enters the lives of the musical Tuttle family, each of the three daughters falls for him. He is charming, good looking and personable. Laurie and Alex seem made for each other and become engaged. When Barney comes into the picture to help Alex with some musical arrangements matters become complicated. He is seen as a challenge by Laurie, who can't believe anyone could be as cynical, and she is more than a match for his gloomy outlook on life. Written by Ron Kerrigan

Did You Know?

Trivia While making this film, Frank Sinatra took an almost immediate dislike to Doris Day's husband, Martin Melcher, thought that Melcher was "using" her to get ahead in the movie business and tried to convince Day of that fact. When Day refused to listen to Sinatra's advice, he had Melcher banned from the set. After Melcher's death in 1968, it was discovered that he had squandered all the money Day had earned during her 20-year film career. See more »
Goofs When Laurie asks Barney why he doesn't have any plants in his window box, he says because they use up all the oxygen. People commonly conceive that plants actually use carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, and this has therefore commonly been regarded as a goof. However whilst a plant is a net producer of oxygen, it does this mostly during the day, whilst it is photosynthesizing, at night time plants do indeed use more oxygen than they produce and this can affect sleep. Barney's explanation is therefore quite sophisticated and indicates a focus on the night time. See more »
