Synopsis
Liza Elliot (Gertrude Lawrence) finds herself constantly plagued by indecision in her professional and personal life. She is courted by two men, the already-married publisher Kendall Nesbitt who is trying to divorce his wife for Liza, and her advertising manager Randy Curtis, and cannot decide who to choose. Seeing a psychologist she delves into her dreams and memories of her unhappy childhood. She illustrates a dream of being put on trial for her indecision in a circus setting, with her photographer Russel Paxton acting as prosecutor, Kendall as chief witness, and Randy as her defense attorney. She defends her refusal to make up her mind ("The Saga of Jenny"). She at last makes her decision when her marketing manager Charley Johnson is able to remember the lyrics to an old song she cannot completely recall. When Charley remembers the words to the song ("My Ship") Liza realizes that he is the man for her, and finally makes up her mind.
