STORY SYNOPSIS:
Austrian singer Louise Fuller has overstayed her visa in the United States and goes to Mexico. Louise is concerned that she may never have the opportunity to perform with her elderly uncle, Walter Mitchell, who resides in the United States. A friend, Carlos, suggests Louise arrange a marriage with an American in order to gain citizenship, and then get a divorce. Louise meets Jimmy Hudson, an American artist who is staying in the same hotel. Jimmy falls in love with Louise after hearing her sing, but then he is arrested. Carlos suggests Louise marry Jimmy, and they walk through a wedding ceremony and leave separately. Louise goes to New York to perform at the Symphony Hall. One day when Louise goes to her apartment, she finds Jimmy waiting to see her. Jimmy is not sure she should go through with their divorce and Louise makes him leave. The couple meets again, however, while Louise takes a break. After a drive in the country, Louise and Jimmy are caught in a rain storm and drive to the home of Jimmy's adopted parents, the Hamiltons. Louise and Jimmy plan a trip to the White Mountains. In order to make the trip, Jimmy rejects an offer to design a mural. Louise's publicist reminds her of her scheduled performance with Uncle Walter. When the press swarm the Hamilton residence to report on the secret nuptials, Jimmy leaves. On the day of the festival, Louise tells Hank that she plans to divorce Jimmy. Jimmy reads Louise's statement in the newspaper, and arrives backstage. Jimmy presents Louise with the legal papers for divorce and leaves. Louise is too upset to continue her performance, and rumors circulate through the audience that she is injured. Jimmy hurries back to the theater and he and Louise make-up. Louise offers to leave the show without returning onstage, but Jimmy insists that she sing "Our Song" to the audience.
