Self-centered society author Harley is admitted to the hospital where nurse Vicky and her boyfriend Dr. Jim work. Playboy Harley sets his sights on Vicky and, when he’s discharged, offers her a job as his private nurse. Vicky accepts the position to earn money so Jim can open his own practice. Jim, jealous, punches Harley when the “blasé cosmopolite” says Vicky is just another of his flings. Jim and Vicky reconcile and Harley finds a new girlfriend.

Indexer Notes

It is possible that supercilious author "Harley Webb" is based on the character "Waldo Lydecker" (played by Clifton Webb) in the film "Laura" (1944).
