The movie is set in 1949 Los Angeles and follows the story of a struggling singer named Martha Gibson (Doris Day) who aspires to become a successful star in the music industry. The story revolves around Martha's journey as she teams up with an ambitious talent agent named Doug Blake (Jack Carson) who sees her potential and helps her achieve her dream. However, complications arise when Martha's young son, Freddie (played by real-life child actor, Billy Gray), becomes jealous of the time Doug spends with his mother, and tries to sabotage their plans.

In the backdrop of the story, the film also presents a satirical commentary on the commercialization of the music industry and the impact of advertising on public tastes.

One of the notable aspects of the film is the chemistry between Doris Day and Jack Carson, who work together seamlessly to bring a sense of warmth and humor to their characters' interactions. The film also showcases Doris Day's talents as a singer and performer, as well as her ability to convey both vulnerability and strength in her acting.

The film was a commercial success upon its release and received positive critical reviews, with praise for its lively musical numbers and the performances of its lead actors. It also marked the beginning of a long-running collaboration between Doris Day and Michael Curtiz, who went on to direct her in several more films.
