Characters played by Ray Milland and C. Aubrey Smith are clearly identified in plot as "Charles Gray, Lord Granton" and the "Duke of Loamshire" respectively, but in the closing credits they are listed as "Charles Gray [Granville]" and "Lloyd Granville." See more »
I want a glass. About this big. Mmm, no, maybe about THIS big. And I don't care what you put in it - whiskey, hair tonic, rat poison - but whatever it is, when I finish drinking it, I want to be curled up in a little heap, right HERE.

Colbert AND MacMurray AND Milland...that's a pretty amazing cast.
Marilyn (Claudette Colbert) meets a nice guy, Charles Gray (Ray Milland) and they fall for each other. What she doesn't know is that this rich member of the British royalty already is engaged...and when he pops the question to her, she rejects him. Her friend, Peter (Fred MacMurray), is a newspaper man and helps her exploit the situation...creating a lounge act for her and billing her as 'The NO Girl'. While she has no singing ability, he insists that this won't be a problem! And, oddly, she becomes quite the sensation.
When she takes her show on the road to the UK, a potential problem arises....Charles. When they meet again, they pick up where they left off...and Pete feels left out...which would seem to indicate he wants her to be more than just his business partner. What's next? See the film...and see who she picks.
Considering the actors, it's not surprising that the movie works quite well. Charming and well worth seeing.
