The long-running radio/TV show where contestants shared tales of woe in hopes of winning life-changing prizes and cash inspired this anthology comedy/drama. Three women─a mother who wants a train set for her boy, a Polish immigrant hoping to win her son money for college, and a baby nurse whose employers mock her homely looks─all vie for the crown and title "Queen for a Day." Series host Jack Bailey appears as himself. With Phyllis Avery, Darren McGavin, Edith Meiser. 106 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
