Synopsis
Department store clerk Barbara visits a resort hotel on her vacation. She's a hit with the male guests, including Jim and Danny, which suits her: "It was only when I was the center of male attention that I felt truly, completely alive!" Golf pro Mark and Barbara fall in love, and he forces her to discard her other admirers, since he can't love "a common flirt!" She isn't sure she's ready to commit, and leaves. Back at work in the city, Barbara finds she is no longer interested in other men. Mark shows up and they realise their love is true.
