-- Synopsis:
     This musical version of Ginger Rogers' classic, Bachelor Mother (1939), is the only film to team America's favorite newlyweds of the 1950s, Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Mistaken identity and crossed heart strings result when a cheerful, out-of-work salesgirl Polly Parrish (Reynolds) is mistaken for the mother of an abandoned infant. Although she tries to explain the situation at first, she is soon singing a different tune when the baby helps her win back her job, win over the boss's son and discover her own maternal instincts.

* Features:
     A dance contest where Jitterbugger's take to the floor. Debbie Reynolds is dancing in the contest with her partner and Fisher gets jealous and enters, except he can't swing to well. Reynolds does a pretty good job. Vintage California West Coast Swing dancers Gil and Nicky Brady and Lenny Smith shine here as well as Gil Hernandez.
