Corliss Archer (Shirley Temple) is an impulsive teenager excited by notorious playboy Kenneth Marquis (David Niven), who has already been to the altar many times and to the boudoir many more. To make her boyfriend, Dexter, jealous, Corliss writes about imaginary romantic trysts with him in her diary, which she gives Dexter the chance to read. Naturally, the book falls into the hands of Corliss's parents (Tom Tully and Gloria Holden), who believe every word, especially when Marquis, to get back at Corliss's father (who has bested him in a legal case), pretends that the diary is true.
