Synopsis
A happily married couple has everything...except a baby. Isolde (Doris Day) is determined to get one any way possible, so she's registered herself and her husband, Augie (Richard Widmark), with the most reputable adoption agency in town, Rock-a-Bye. They seem the perfect candidates--a happy, secure couple. But that's before their neighbor, Dick (Gig Young), plants a seed in Augie's head about Dick's own philandering ways, and Augie finds himself tempted to stray from his normal faithfulness. When Rock-a-Bye sends a social worker out to investigate the couple and their neighbors--who are Augie and Isolde's references--the mixed signals, misunderstandings, and farcical situations turn a near-tragedy into a madcap comedy. Day, Widmark (in a rare comic performance), and Young are eminently likable in this Gene Kelly-directed romp.
Notes
This film was the first feature that Kelly directed but did not appear in.

The Esquire Trio appears as themselves.

The film was completed in three weeks and shot virtually on one set.

When Kelly was assigned to direct the film, it came with stars Doris Day and Richard Widmark already attached, as well as producers Marty Melcher (Day's husband) and Joe Fields.
