Summary
  • Polly Parrish impulsively picks up a baby left at the orphanage doors at Christmas. Everyone assumes the baby is hers. Her boss, David Merlin, son of the department store tycoon, is outraged by her unmotherly conduct, and arranges a job for her if she will look after her child properly. His Dad thinks the child is his secret grandson! In the end David falls in love with Polly and the boy and plans to marry her, all the while believing she is the child's mother
  • The film is laced with witty one-liners and quirky situations and Garson Kanin considered this the best comedy he directed. Rogers only dances in a dance competition in this film. The costumes are lovely and this film was made at the peak of her career in a break from Astaire
