On Moonlight Bay is a 1951 musical film directed by Roy Del Ruth which tells the story of the Winfield family at the turn of the century. The movie is based loosely on the Penrod stories by Booth Tarkington. There was a 1953 sequel, By the Light of the Silvery Moon.



On Moonlight Bay centers on the character Marjorie Winfield, a tomboy played by Doris Day. When the Winfield family moves into a new house in a small town in Indiana, the daughter, Marjorie begins a romance with the boy next door, William Sherman, played by Gordon MacRae. Marjorie has to learn how to dance and behave like a proper young lady. Unfortunately Mr. Winfield doesn't approve of William and some of his unconventional ideas about marriage and money, which causes the course of true love to run less smoothly than could be desired. Everything is resolved in time for a happy ending.
