Plot summary[edit]

Victoria Stafford (Ginger Rogers), a wealthy girl who has been engaged three times, and has three times backed out at the altar. Determined to wed her fourth fiancé, Oliver H.P. Harrington (Ron Randell), Victoria is on the verge of saying "yes", when suddenly she sees the vision of her "dream lover," George (Cornel Wilde), whom she has envisioned since childhood.[1]



Ginger Rogers, in her autobiography, Ginger: My Story:[2] "[It was] a very amusing script about a girl who backs out of four marriages. In the end she finds the answer to her dreams and the reason for her vacillation. The 'answer' was played by Cornel Wilde, who usually appeared in robust adventure roles. I must say, he marched into the picture as though he had done farce all his life. Spring Byington played my mother..., and I got to act for a few moments with Anna Q. Nilsson.[3]
