Director: Peter Godfrey
Synopsis: Elizabeth Lane (Barbara Stanwyck) writes a column for a popular magazine and is the idol of many an American housewife - living on a farm in on a farm in Connecticut with her husband and baby, a model of domesticity. Her publisher Alexander Yardley (Sydney Greenstreet) creates a publicity stunt by inviting a serviceman who survived a torpedo attack to spend Christmas with her. There's a small problem: Elizabeth really lives in Manhattan and has no real concept of a domestic life - or a baby.
Scene: Elizabeth agress to a persistent marriage proposal from her friend John Sloan (Reginald Gardiner), who actually lives on a farm in Connecticut, just in time to greet the sailor and her publisher. Expecting an old man, she is pleasantly surprised to meet a handsome young man, Jefferson Jones (Dennis Morgan).
Monogram: This over-the-top sequined monogram (EAL) adorns the right shoulder of her jacket.
