Employees of the Sleeptite Pajama Factory are looking for a whopping seven-and-a-half cent an hour increase and they won't take no for an answer. Babe Williams is their feisty employee representative but she may have found her match in shop superintendent Sid Sorokin. When the two get together they wind up discussing a whole lot more than job actions! Written by A.L. Beneteau

About: A pajama factory worker (Doris Day) who heads the workers union in the factory, falls in love with the new superintendent (John Raitt), who has just fired her.
The screen version is extremely loyal to its origins, utilizing almost all of the original Broadway cast (except for Janis Paige, who lost the role of Babe to 50's box office powerhouse Doris Day)and keeping most of the original score intact ("Hers Is" and "A New Town is a Blue Town" are not used in the film and a song written especially for Doris for the film, ended up being cut).
