This is a smooth but empty musical remake of 1938's FOUR DAUGHTERS, sans one daughter. Laurie Tuttle (Doris Day) and sisters Fran and Amy (Dorothy Malone and Elizabeth Fraser) live with their father (Robert Keith) and Aunt Jessie (Ethel Barrymore). When Alex Burke (Gig Young), a composer

working on a musical comedy, arrives on the scene, both Laurie and Fran fall in love with him. Alex calls in a friend, the embittered pianist and composer Barney Sloan (Frank Sinatra), to help him arrange the musical's score, and Barney promptly falls for Laurie, who has gotten engaged to Alex. On

the eve of her wedding to Alex, however, Laurie finds out about Fran's feelings for Alex; Laurie then nobly backs out of the wedding and heads for the city with Barney. They get married, and in time she comes to love him truly, though he is unconvinced of the sincerity of her emotion. Bad luck

strikes again and again, until Barney finally comes to have faith in Laurie's love and they embark on married life anew. Despite all the talent involved, this soap opera fails to generate much interest, especially since Day and Sinatra generate few sparks.
