Bruce Blakely, a meek, mild-mannered certified public accountant, finally gets fed up with his money-grubbing family sponging off of him, and decides to partake of a different side and slice of life. A blonde secretary helps guide him.
Piffle about a carny girl who pretends to be Norwegian in order to win a movie contract, and falls in love with her director. Not much, but at slightly over an hour it certainly doesn't wear out its welcome, and that hour includes several renditions of the altogether lovely Arlen-Koehler title song.

Tala Birell is also fun as a screaming diva, and Gregory Ratoff does a very early warmup of his "All About Eve" role. A very pleasant way to kill 67 minutes.
