1941. Lovely, innocent-looking, well-endowed comedienne Marie Wilson is a dizzy delight with high cheekbones, a wide-eyed expression and an attention-grabbing figure. She’s been typecast ever since she followed up an appearance with Laurel and Hardy in Babes in Toyland with roles in various comedy potboilers. But smart and ambitious, Marie can’t help but feel a bit disappointed at her failure to get other parts:
Show business has been very good to me and I’m not complaining, but some day I just wish someone would offer me a different kind of role. My closest friends admit that whenever they tell someone they know me they have to convince them that I’m really not dumb. To tell you the truth I think people are disappointed that I’m not.
