SYNOPSIS

A sharp writer, who has never set foot in a kitchen, passes herself off as the consummate housewife in the column she writes for a women's magazine. When a promotional stunt plants her editor and a war veteran at her fictitious home for Christmas dinner, she has to marry her boyfriend, find a house, and prepare a spectacular meal, pronto. Life grows even more complicated when she starts to fall for the sailor. Stanwyck's perfect in this holiday confection. Remade for cable in 1992 by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
