This cozy little Warner Bros. drama was based on a Saturday Evening Post story by Lillian Day. Ruth Donnelly stars as Lizzie, a personal maid who after serving several of New York's "best" families, elects to work in the middle-class home of insurance salesman Tom Smith (Warren Hull) and his wife (Margaret Lindsay). Using the business acumen she's gleaned from her previous employers, Lizzie subliminally guides Tom to financial success and a higher social status. Virtue turns out to be its own reward when the Smith's good fortune extends to Lizzie's own daughter (Anita Louise). Personal Maid's Secret is an offbeat "straight" assignment for droll comedienne Ruth Donnelly, who handles the assignment with calm assurance.
