Vivacious Lady is entertainment of the highest order and broadest appeal. Story by I.A.R. Wylie tells the romantic adventures and tribulations of a New York cabaret singer and a youthful college professor.

It is a case of love at first sight, a speedy wooing and hasty marriage. Then the young man takes his bride to the small town and introduces her to his family and associates. Prejudice and stern respectability resist the invasion. Manner in which approval of the marriage is won from the boy’s parents is amusingly accomplished.

In their predicament of living apart until the conventional amenities of proper introduction into society are observed, Ginger Rogers and James Stewart undergo a series of connubial disappointments, interruptions ad interferences.

Beulah Bondi is the understanding mother-in-law and Charles Coburn is excellent as the father of the bridegroom.
