Jan Morrow is a successful young interior decorator who is forced to share a party line with a man named Brad Allen. Brad is so frequently talking to one girl or another that Jan, in desperation, breaks in on one of his conversations, only to have Brad accuse her of snooping. This hurts her feelings because she'd never do that. She's a lonely girl who has been giving everything to her work, and her evenings are spent alone, talking to her pillow.
Through a friend, Brad finally meets Jan. He passes himself off as a naive young fellow from Texas named Rex Stetson, and Jan is entranced. When Brad, over their party line, gives her dire warnings concerning Rex, she is indignant. Brad's dual identity as the Texan and the cynical commentator on Jan's increasingly important love for the gentle Rex makes this a very special comedy.
