While Anita is making plans to marry Don, she meets Tony a magician and they fall in love and marry. Anita goes on the road with Tony’s act, even performing in his show with him. But his stunts become more and more dangerous and Anita can no longer take it. She divorces him and to get over the heartbreak, she marries Don. But Anita can’t escape Tony for long and not long after her wedding they’re stuck at the same party together.

The first half of the movie is very charming. David Niven, was quite impressive as a dare devil magician, who becomes torn between his fans and his commitment to his wife, which makes for a very interesting love story. Niven and Young, have wonderful on screen chemistry.
