A rather innocent and naive tale of romance, The Main Attraction features clean-cut Pat Boone trying to drop his good-boy image and not wholly succeeding. He plays Eddie, who works in an Italian café until he is fired for mixing it up with some rowdies. Hitting the pavement, he runs into Gina (Mai Zetterling) who has a ventriloquist act in a circus. Before he knows it, Eddie is helping Gina out with her act and the two also get involved romantically. But then Eddie becomes attracted to Tessa (Nancy Kwan), an equestrienne with the circus, complicating his life considerably -- especially after Tessa leaves because of some difficulties.
