| A Comedy for Eleanor
On her way to work, San Francisco secretary Eleanor Parker (as Christabel "Christy" Sloane) attracts stares and whistles from everyone, due to her blonde beauty. She is sent to tell Los Angeles radio talk show host Fred MacMurray (as Peter Ulysses Lockwood) he has inherited two million dollars. Financially strapped, Ms. Parker's decides to follow advice from co-worker Una Merkel (as Patsy Clifford) and get MacMurray's marriage proposal before revealing his wealth...

Unfortunately, Parker arrives as MacMurray is about to marry another woman. Fortunately, his psychiatrist pal Richard Carlson (as Roland Cook) wants to stop the wedding and marry heiress Kay Buckley (as June Chandler) himself. This is a partially successful attempt to put Parker in a 1930s style comedy. Producer husband Bert Friedlob includes a fine team, especially MacMurray and photographer Harry Stradling. Alas, Parker and the co-stars' scripted love never seems believable.

***** A Millionaire for Christy (9/2/51) George Marshall ~ Eleanor Parker, Fred MacMurray, Richard Carlson, Kay Buckley
