Non-singing rolesEdit


The highly successful jazz musician C.K. Dexter Haven was divorced from wealthy Newport, Rhode Island socialite Tracy Samantha Lord, but remains in love with her. She, however, is about to get married to a bland gentleman of good standing, George Kittredge.

Spy Magazine, a fictional tabloid newspaper in possession of embarrassing information about Tracy's father, sends reporter Mike Connor and photographer Liz Imbrie to cover the nuptials. Tracy begins an elaborate charade as a private means of revenge, introducing her Uncle Willy as her father Seth Lord and the latter as her Uncle Willy.

Connor falls in love with Tracy, who must choose among three very different men in a course of self-discovery.
