Down-on-his-luck film director Jimmie Dale takes a job at a fly-by-night acting school. He is drawn into the plans of the school's owner to bilk a wealthy young man out of the funds he has supplied to shoot a movie starring pretty student Alice Perkins. But Jimmie hopes to bilk the bilkers by actually completing the movie as ostensibly planned. Written by

This a quite an enjoyable early Faye effort. At 19, she's quite the trouper and gives a convincing, compelling performance. The big production number of "Yes, To You" is a real show-stopper and I think this is one of Faye's best songs. She gives a playful, comic touch to her impersonations of a Dutch girl, French Chanteuse, and exotic Asian doll. The plot is pure make-believe and everyone seems to be having fun with it. Jimmy Dunn is good and well as such stand-bys as Grant Mitchell. The comic duo Mitchell and Durant are tolerable at best. It's good someone saved this film from obscurity -- it's good entertainment -- now when can they do the same for NOW I'LL TELL? The Faye/ Spencer Tracy Fox film needs the same treatment.
