Goldie Appleby (Betty Hutton) was a former showgirl-turned-manicurist-turned-legal guardian.
When one of her customers, a Mr Strickland, passed away suddenly, he left everything to her in his will – a Park Avenue duplex and his three children: Roy, the youngest (Dennis Joel) who attended the Ezra Taft Preparatory Day School for Boys; Pat, the artist (Gigi Perrault); and Nicky (Richard Miles) who loved sports cars.
Goldie also inherited the family’s lawyer Howard Seaton (Tom Conway).
Goldie’s attempts to adjust to her newfound wealth, status, and three children were at times overwhelming.
Goldie’s former roommates Lorna (Joan Shawlee) and Rosemary (Jean Carson) appeared occasionally.
