Really attractive little musical, with O'Connor as a magazine photographer's gofer pretending to make a cover girl of a chorine (Reynolds) in order to impress her, then heading for disaster as he tries to make good his empty promises. The family scenes have a touch of Meet Me in St Louis, and the numbers choreographed by Robert Alton - including a football ballet (with Reynolds as the football) and a roller-skating dance for O'Connor - are bright and breezily inventive.
