Description:Bernie Dodd (William Holden), a Broadway director, hires Frank Elgin (Bing Crosby) for the lead in his play. Frank used to be a famous singer and actor, but became an alcoholic after his son died. Bernie thinks Frank's wife Georgie (Grace Kelly) is the problem, that she puts him down and dominates him. When he finds out Frank has been lying about her and that she's the only reason he can function at all, Bernie changes his mind and falls in love with her. When Frank finally pulls it together and the play succeeds, Bernie asks Georgie to leave Frank and marry him. Georgie is tempted, but she's loyal and sees in Frank the man she loved before the accident and stays with him.
