Young Eddie Corbett tries his best to be a matchmaker for his widowed father, Tom. At first, sexy Dollye Daly seems promising, but she ends up falling in love with and marrying Tom's friend and radio colleague, Norman Jones.

Tom becomes attracted to a sophisticated socialite, Rita Behrens. They begin considering marriage, but Eddie takes an immediate dislike to Rita and she does not know how to deal with Eddie (nor does she particularly want to learn). In the end, Tom chooses his son over her.

Through all this, the Corbetts are supported by their new housekeeper, Mrs. Livingston, and by their divorced next-door neighbor, Elizabeth Marten. It takes a crisis for Tom to realize what has been under his nose all the time.
