Description by OLDIES.com:

It's social season in London, and amid the swirl of coming-out balls the aristocratic Broadbents (real-life marrieds Rex Harrison and Kay Kendall) are intent on giving their American-educated 17-year-old daughter Jane (Sandra Dee) the right entry into society and a proper upper-class beau. One complication: flighty Mabel Claremont (Angela Lansbury) is eager to match that same beau with her daughter. And another: Jane, of course, has her own ideas about these matters - and an eye for a guy (John Saxon) who's a drummer in the dance band. Comedy is in season for The Reluctant Debutante, a rib-tickler of societal foibles and follies given spirited direction by Vincente Minnelli and featuring a full dance card of deft badinage.

Product Description:

A pair of British high society members host a beautiful young American visitor who falls for an American instead of the snooty English boy her stepmother has arranged for her debut.

Plot Synopsis:

A recently married British gentleman has his American daughter, a child from a previous marriage, visit him and his bride in England. The indifferent teen is introduced at several society affairs and debutante balls, but seems uninterested in any of the British boys. When she finally falls for someone, it turns out to be an American lad -- and worse yet, he's a drummer in a rock band.
