This 1946 production/1947 release is a slight remake of 1937's "True Confession"---Hutton sings three songs and Carole Lombard didn't---with the heroine not adverse to telling a small (or big) white lie when she deems the situation can be improved. Peggy Harper (Betty Hutton)moves from the chorus line to the position of private secretary to a pawing producer, primarily so her lawyer-fiancee Oliver Clarke (Sonny Tufts)can be the benefactor of the producer's truck-load legal business. But she is forced to flee the office one night, to protect her assets, and leaves her hat, coat and purse behind. It should come as no surprise that the producer turns up dead and Peggy is accused of the deed...especially with Preston Sturges-favorite Alan Bridge the detective working the case. Peggy, not doing a whole lot to prove otherwise, is soon on trial for murder.

A talented 10-year-old singing prodigy, Foxine LaRue, who is only slightly less artificial and theatrical than her name, is pushed into vaudeville by her stage-mother mama, Gert LaRue, who is even more artificial and theatrical than her name. Foxine's pretty and older sister, Mary LaRue makes sacrifices to support the trio. Al Partridge, a Hollywood agent becomes interested in Mary and takes the family trio to Hollywood in the hopes of Foxine getting into the movies. After several incidents by the rowdy Foxine on the train, and later at International Studios, Foxine is further from being in the movies than she was in New York. Gert decides that a "hoax" kidnapping is just the ticket to get Foxine the publicity to land a studio contract. That night Foxine dresses as a boy, disarranges her room, leaves a "ransom note" and hops a freight train. The police arrive the next morning and hear Mary accuse Al and Gert of staging the kidnapping, and they are arrested. Foxine leaves the train several hundred miles away and takes shelter with the good-natured Pascual Orozco and his family. The arrested pair are released when the police receive another ransom note (sent by Foxine.)
