Heather is the lead singer for a band that is on its way to fame and fortune. Things get complicated when she becomes pregnant and has three men willing to be both husband and father. But her boss isn't one of them.
Early twenty-something innocent Heather Halloran has always been pushed by her stage mother, Louise Halloran, to be a professional singer, despite Heather not wanting that as a career and having only modest talent as a singer. Against Louise's goal, Heather instead gets an office job working as a secretary for Harlan W. Wycliff, who has a mind and thus behaves like a computer. As such, he *knows* he's always right, including that his secretaries fall in love with him because he's young, powerful, wealthy and attractive. To prove Harlan wrong on another issue and thus knock his superior attitude down a notch or two, Heather takes Louise up on her offer for $5,000, which required Louise to re-mortgage her house, for professional help in putting together a musical act. Through her dealings with Harlan and the serious pursuit of that musical career, Heather embarks on trial relationships with three men who have doggedly pursued her: Dick Bender, a childhood friend and longtime neighbor ...Written by
Heather comes into Harlan's office and sits down while he is shaving. He sees her in the mirror he is holding and looks her up and down, but his hand and the mirror he is holding don't move, revealing it is a process shot. See more »
I recalled seeing this movie as a child in the 70's, and was very excited when I saw that TCM was showing is this month. I made sure I taped it and then settled down for a fun night of nostalgia. Well... I was very disappointed! This film makes no sense and is so slapstick that is is an embarrassment for fans of Sandra Dee, like me. I wasn't expecting high drama, but compared to 'If a Man Answers' or 'Come September', this is just silly nonsense. The director really tried to hard to get laughs and it didn't work. I love Sandra Dee and am sorry to say this is one of her only films I really hated. If you have never really seen many films with her than I would recommend the aforementioned two and a must see... 'A Summer Place'. I feel really terrible to leave this review, but this film is just not worthwhile.
