Suave man-about-town Nickie Ferrante (Grant), is about to put his bachelor days behind him by marrying a young heiress. That is, until he meets singer Terry McKay (Kerr) on an ocean cruise. The two fall deeply in love and, though they are both engaged, agree to meet six months later at the Empire State Building if their feelings are still the same. But fate intervenes with the two lovers
