Strong entertainment for femme theatregoers has been developed from adventures of the Rose Franken magazine characters, Claudia and David. Film is jammed with tears and chuckles, played and directed to realize fully on all values.

Dorothy McGuire makes the scatterbrained Claudia believeable, and Robert Young backs her up with an equally good performance as her longsuffering husband, David.

Plot generally concerns Claudia’s susceptibility and strong love for her young son. Trouble starts when a phoney mindreader warns her husband he will have an accident if he takes a trip to California. Sudden illness of the son, which Claudia builds into a serious tragedy only to find out it’s measles; her jealousy of her husband’s professional attention to an attractive widow seeking his architectural advice; the attentions paid her by an attractive married man; and a serious auto accident in which David is injured are some of the more dramatic moments that are leavened with smart, earthy chuckles.
