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
Hank tells Heather he spends $40 per week on booze. That amount would equate to over $310 in 2019. See more »
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'm not working for a human being. He's a computer, with an automatic brain, and an electric eye, and a recording system all in one.
My boss is a slob.

Sandra Dee, at this point in her career struggling for roles (and not just roles which might extract her from the 'Gidget' persona, but ANY roles), plays pregnant and unmarried "singer" involved with three different suitors, but who's the father? Would-be modern comedy has the same leftover faces from those early-'60s bedroom comedies (Bill Bixby, George Hamilton, Dwanye Hickman--what happened to Richard Crenna, was he busy that month?). Film substitutes wit with leering stupidity, although Celeste Holm and Sandra Dee create a nice rapport as mother and daughter. The men are all lackluster, as is the screenplay and the direction. * from ****
