Don’t be fooled. It would be fair to expect a film noir mystery from Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh, seeped in mood and angst. But this one is a holiday love story, a charming light romantic comedy.

It’s Christmastime, and the stores are filled with shoppers, including the toy department at Crowley’s, where Steve Mason (Robert Mitchum) is working. He just sold a toy train to Connie Ennis (Janet Leigh), whom he correctly suspects is a comparison shopper for the competition.
