THE STORY: The Air Force desperately wants a new missile system, lest Congress give the money to the Navy. The inventor of the system, however, has just been divorced and his ex-wife now controls the company. She informs the Air Force, however, that she is not interested in making weapons, so the top brass devises a strategy to subject her to the charms of the Air Force's most attractive officer. He and a young lieutenant visit the divorcee posing as writers from a business magazine, and soon they are getting along swimmingly. But the young Lieutenant is soon won over to the lady's viewpoint, falls in love with her daughter and resigns his commission. On top of that, the divorced couple are really still in love. In the end they reconcile, the Air Force gets its missile system, and all turns out happily.
