Singer Linda Durrell (Mary Beth Hughes) has just made her radio debut,
when three men propose to her, a woman every man (at least in this film)
seems to fall in love with: There's rich Roland Palmer (Alan Edwards), who
has made her career possible, there is Jim Lacey (Ted North), a man who
she was in love with until she (wrongly) suspected him to be a jewel
thief, and then there's music teacher/composer Jeffrey Wingate (Edward
Norris), who composed the song she sang at her debut.
To decide between
the three men, she relives her past, how she left the orphanage she grew
up in and later worked at to become a singer - but first became friendly
with a truck driver (Lyle Latell) who wanted to marry her on the spot.
This drove her away to secretary school, and soon she became nothing more
than Roland Palmer's secretary. However, he took (personal) interest in
her and saw to it that she got singing lessons ... which all went very
well until his sister Eloise (Kay Linaker) drove Linda away. She then got
involved in the murder of a nightclub owner, and found herself on the run
... right into the arms of Jim Lacey, who promised to sort things out, and
soon enough the two were a couple and he even proposed to her and gave her
a diamond bracelet ... which she thought was stolen, and again she found
herself on the run, and ultimately she swindled herself into the job of a
physical education teacher at a highschool where she met music teacher
Jeffrey Wingate, and thanks to their love to music and long walks in the
park, they became close friends pretty much right away, and he even fell
in love with her - but she just couldn't love him back, as in her eyes he
simply lacked self-esteem. Then though Roland Palmer ahs succeeded to
track her down and gets her a radio gig pretty much right ont he spot,
where she sang one of Wingate's songs ... which of course totally boosted
his self esteem ...
And in the end, it's actually Wingate who gets the
Ok melodrama, definitely nothing great but also by far not as
cheesy as it could have been, and Mary Beth Hughes is a well-enough lead
and easy on the eye. Sure, this is not a film you will remember for very
long, but there are worse ways to spend seventy minutes.
