Roger and his wife, Dorothy (Frieda Inescort) have been married twenty years without ever thinking of having other romances. They have become settled and rather stodgy. Their daughter, Catherine, (Olivia de Havilland) is having her picture painted by a famous artist, Paul Francis, (Walter Woolf King), who has a weakness for women. She is infatuated with him. The younger daughter, Ann (Bonita Granville) has just discovered the beauty of poetry and worships before the shrine of Shelley and Rosetti. During the course of the day, the effect of spring on the family causes no end of comic situations. The son, Martin (Peter Willes) discovers that the girl next door, Joan (Anita Louise) is lovely and forgets his desire for a car in his infatuation. She invites him to the theatre and he goes. Roger, who suddenly begins to worry about his waist line, meets a new client, Beatrice Gwynn, a beautiful actress (Marcia Ralston), who finds him attractive and immediately makes a play for him. She invites him to her flat to discuss her income tax that evening. He goes, planning to have an affair with her, but at the last minute gets cold feet and returns to his home with an even greater love for his wife. Dorothy meets Frank West (Roland Young) brother of her best friend, Muriel West (Alice Brady), and he falls in love with her, mistaking her for the woman Muriel has chosen for him to marry. Dorothy is flattered by his attention and invites him home to supper. While Roger is at the flat of Beatrice, flirting with her, Dorothy is flirting with Frank. Catherine goes to Paul’s studio, tells him of her love and makes a date to meet him at a rendezvous. He doesn’t meet her and instead goes to Italy with his wife, and Catherine goes to bed heartbroken. Ann secures a painting by Rosetti to add to her collection. Her best moment of the day comes when Dorothy allows her to skip supper and go to a film based on Rosetti’s life. The picture ends with the family going to bed, each member of it brought closer together by the events of the first day of Spring. “kes Uke OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND — Faster than any young actress on the screen has Olivia de Havilland shot upward to fame during the last couple of years.
