Release Year:
MPAA Rating: PG
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Director: Barnet Kellman

Leaving her rural life in Arkansas, Shirlee Kenyon moves to Chicago and seeks employment at a radio station. When a mix-up finds Shirlee sitting in as the host on a show for call-in advice, her common-sense wisdom wins over fans. Soon she's ''Doctor Shirlee,'' an in-demand on-air personality, but, of course, she's lacking in the proper credentials, a fact that journalist Jack Russell already suspects. Will Shirlee be able to keep her new gig if the truth gets out?
