| Married life has ups and downs but still worth it
This is a typical story of suburban married life, the roses and thorns, the bliss and clashes.

As an aspiring writer, Bill Austin (Van Johnson) stays home to churn out some writings while his wife, Bertie (Janet Leigh) goes out to work. He isn't happy about it, wants change. However, soon Fortune smiles on him and good changes occur; then he's on his way up as a writer, but there's a price.

Problems begin when he spends too much time away from his wife and being assisted by his attractive literary agent, Lucinda (Martha Hyer). One thing leads to another while they work on scripts together. Bertie, left alone, also goes astray, all of this leading up to a divorce as the only solution.

It is middle-of-the-road entertainment about family feuds and makeups. If you are a fan of Van, Janet, or Martha, you'll enjoy this bright and witty film.
