In December 1944 in New York City, naïve young actress Sally Middleton is jilted by her lover, a theatrical producer, for becoming too serious about their relationship. Although she vows to not allow herself to fall in love again, Sally agrees to a dinner date with Bill Page, an Army sergeant on a weekend pass who is rejected by Sally's friend, the sophisticated Olive Lashbrooke.

When Bill has trouble finding a hotel room, he spends the weekend at Sally's apartment. Although they sleep in separate rooms, the arrangement creates awkward situations for Sally, especially when she finds herself developing feelings for Bill.

Olive has second thoughts about Bill and makes romantic overtures. However, Bill has fallen for Sally and convinces her to overcome her fears and start a romance with him.


Box office

According to Warner Bros. records, the film earned $2,617,000 domestically and $499,000 foreign.[1]


Many critics compared the film to the original play, which finished its Broadway run one week after the film's release. Time magazine complained that the film "is most coyly prurient where the play was most pleasantly candid" while The New York Times found the film version more satisfying because it was "morally wholesome and ideally romantic."[5]
