A bright B musical which stars O'Keefe and Parrish as the children of politically minded parents. O'Keefe's dad is in the race for governor, while Parrish's is a political boss. Both parents try to pair the kids, but O'Keefe and Parrish have different ideas. Pretending they like each other,

they leave on a date but meet their real loves--O'Keefe with Moore, and Parrish with Howard. It's not long, however, before the politicized pair fall in love, bringing out jealous antics in both Moore and Howard. After Parrish is nearly swept into an overnight marriage with Howard, O'Keefe

arranges to marry her. The end has the couple walking up the aisle while the jilted Moore and Howard watch from the wings. It was Moore as O'Keefe's ex-love who won the audience's hearts, however, as she delivered three tunes: "I'm Nobody's Sweetheart Now" (Gus Kahn, Ernie Erdman, Billy Meyers,

Elmer Schoebel), "There Goes My Love," and "Got Romance" (Everett Carter, Milton Rosen). Margaret Hamilton, cast in a supporting role, had a year previously appeared as the Witch in THE WIZARD OF OZ. Laura Hope Crews, as the mother of O'Keefe, could be seen in GONE WITH THE WIND as Aunt

Pittypat.
