A mid-1930s precursor to the 1956 Broadway musical Bells are Ringing, Give Her a Ring concerns a group of melodic telephone operators who get involved in the lives of their clients. One of these is Karen Swenson (Wendy Barrie), whose inability to mind her own business gets her in all sorts of jams. She finally stops butting in when her boss Paul Hedrick (Clifford Mollison) declares his love for her. American musical-comedy favorite Zelma O'Neal, who'd introduced "The Varsity Drag" in the original stage production of Good News, plays the gum-chewing comedy relief. Give Her a Ring is based on a German play titled Fraulein Falsch Verbunden.
