Doris Day is young singer/dancer Melinda Howard, abroad in Britain but returning home to surprise her mother, former Broadway star but unbeknownst to her daughter, now a washed-up cabaret singer prone to tipple. The present owner of her mother's former mansion, Adolph Hubbell, allows a charade to keep up appearances for the Melinda, who is also offered a role. Includes fantastic dance number on stairs, which Doris considered the most difficult of her career.
