The plot concerns Susan Darell (Joan Fontaine), an actress from New York City, who is about to be married, even though they have only known each other for a few weeks. Complications set in when her fiancé Richard Aiken (Walter Abel) gives a party to celebrate. He discovers that Susan has had three previous boyfriends when he sees their pictures in her living room.

At the party he talks to the three former beaus of Susan, each of whom describes Susan as an entirely different person. They tell him how they met and fell in love with her. The first one to talk to Richard is Broadway producer Roger Berton (George Brent), who met Susan on a vacation island. He discovered her acting talent and cast her in role in his new production of Joan of Arc. The next beau is Mike Ward (Don DeFore), an industrialist Millionaire, whom he met when making a deal with the producer. He discovered that Susan was too much of a cosmopolitan girl for his taste. The third man was a novelist named Bill Anthony (Dennis O'Keefe), who met Susan in a park.

While spending time with Bill, Susan began an intellectual era, but she decides not to go through with their plans to marry, leaving Bill at the altar. The fiancé Richard Aiken hesitates in going through with the wedding because he is not sure just who is the real Susan. All the other three men agree that they still love Susan, and she ultimately chooses the Broadway producer to be her husband.
