Deanna Durbin lifts her voice in laughter and song in this lighthearted musical comedy costarring Kay Francis and Walter Pidgeon. When Broadway star Georgia Drake (Francis) heads for Honolulu to prepare for her latest show, her daughter Pam (Durbin) wins the lead in the same production, unaware the role was also assigned to her mother. Setting sail to Hawaii, where the teenager hopes Georgia will coach her, Pam meets John Arlen (Pidgeon), a millionaire she mistakenly believes is in love with her. Upset to learn she's stolen the part from Georgia, Pam decides to give up the stage for John, a man who's twice her age and madly in love with her mom. Featuring four songs by Durbin, including the hit Love Is All, It's a Date was a Universal Pictures release that was acquired and remade by M-G-M as Nancy Goes to Rio (1950), starring Jane Powell and Ann Sothern.
