Love and Learn

Director: Frederick De Cordova

Writers: Eugene Conrad, I.A.L. Diamond

Struggling songwriters Jingles Collins and Bob Grant are unable to sell a song without an endorsement from a well-known band. After a failed attempt to demonstrate their talents to theatrical producer Hugo Bronson, Bob decides to return home to the small town where his mother lives. Jingles and his longtime girl friend Jackie then take Bob out on the town to celebrate his last night in New York City. Meanwhile, wealthy Barbara Wyngate, tired of having her life planned by her socially prominent mother, resolves to have one last fling before she marries her stodgy fiancÚ Willard. While her family attends the opera, Barbara goes slumming at Danceland. Because unescorted women are not allowed at the club, Barbara pretends to be a dance hostess. By chance, Bob, Jingles and Jackie are also at Danceland. Mistaking Barbara for the girl friend of the club's band leader, Linky, Jingles encourages Bob to try to persuade her to ask Linky to play one of their songs. Without revealing her real identity, Barbara explains that she has no influence with Linky, but she is attracted to Bob and later leaves the club with the others. Having fallen in love with Barbara, Bob decides to stay in New York and invites her to lunch the following day. In order to keep her identity a secret, Barbara rents a modest apartment, where she pretends to live. Later, Barbara throws a party for Jingle's birthday and asks her father to pick out a gift for him. Wyngate buys a cigarette case from Tiffany's, a gift that is far too extravagant to have been purchased by a supposedly unemployed woman. Bob's suspicions grow when Barbara gives Jingles and him a diamond bracelet to pawn so that they can use the money to publish their songs themselves. When Bob sees a newspaper report about a beautiful girl burglar, he immediately assumes that Barbara is a kleptomaniac, but after the police arrest the burglar, he is forced to find another explanation for Barbara's mysterious source of income. Barbara promises to explain everything that evening at dinner. Then she secretly asks her father for a check, which she uses to persuade music publisher Wells to publish one of Bob and Jingle's songs. Bob is so excited when Wells signs them that he rushes to Barbara's apartment to tell her the news. After Barbara's landlady tells Bob that Barbara never sleeps in her apartment, Bob sees Wyngate drop Barbara off at the apartment and mistakenly believes that she is a kept woman. Disillusioned, Bob returns to his mother's house and refuses to listen to Barbara's explanation. Even when their song becomes a big hit, Bob refuses to return to New York or to write more songs. Desperate to get his partner back to work, Jingles agrees to marry Jackie and asks Bob to be his best man. Bob takes part in the wedding but insists that he will leave town immediately afterward. When he learns that Barbara paid for publishing the song, however, Bob decides to confront her. In the meantime, Barbara has eloped with Willard. Wyngate, who dislikes Willard, clears up the misunderstanding between Bob and Barbara, and Bob and he rush off to stop the marriage. They arrive in the nick of time, and Bob and Barbara are married.

MORE INFO ON JACK CARSON: When Jack Carson arrived in Hollywood in 1937, he found work at RKO as an extra. His first major acting role came alongside Humphrey Bogart in the romantic comedy Stand-In (1937). After a few years, he developed into a popular character actor who would be seen in a large number of comedies, musicals and a few westerns. Not happy with the direction his career was heading, he went to Warner Brothers in 1941, where the quality of his supporting roles improved. It also did not hurt to be in films that starred James Cagney, such as The Strawberry Blonde (1941) and The Bride Came C.O.D. (1941). After three years, he starred with Jane Wyman in Make Your Own Bed (1944) and, again, in The Doughgirls (1944). Jack would play the nice guy with the heart of gold who was still a nice guy even when he was angry. He would take the double take and the quizzical look to a higher level, but he could also act in dramas. He provided a good portrayal of "Albert" in The Hard Way (1943) and was acclaimed for his performance in Mildred Pierce (1945). However, it was comedies that provided most of his work. He teamed up with his old friend, Dennis Morgan, for several films in the tradition of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. It was in the 1940s that Jack would become popular as a wisecracking comedian on radio. This would lead him to TV in the 1950s, where he was one of 4 rotating hosts on "All Star Revue" (1950), until 1951, when he had left the show and the title was changed to "All Star Revue". He then hosted and performed on "The Colgate Comedy Hour" from 1952-55. He would also help host "The U.S. Royal Showcase" (1952). He would appear on a number of shows during the 1950s, one of his most remembered being an episode of "Twilight Zone" (1959), where he was a somewhat underhanded used-car salesman who came into possession of an old Model-A Ford that was "haunted" in that whoever owned it had to tell the truth, whether he wanted to or not. Although his movie career slowed in the 1950s, he still appeared in a number of prestige pictures, such as A Star Is Born (1954) with Judy Garland, The Tarnished Angels (1957) with Rock Hudson and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) with Paul Newman.
