Storyline

Washed-up songwriter Harry Miller and his neighbor, dancer Billie Shaw, are insolvent despite efforts to find work in radio. But Harry is visited by his "student," hillbilly Lester Robin, who can only write songs in his dreams. And lo! Lester's first nap yields a song hit for which Harry takes credit. But to fulfill his new contract, he needs to keep Lester sleeping, amidst romantic complications. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

This is a great Lost Gem!

Nobody except for me and one of my friend's have seen this movie. But it's great! It's got lot's of humor and lot's of great song's in it! And it's really interesting to watch. And, all in all, it's just a very fun movie. Pure Escapism! That's All! I really loved the scene where there trying to get Lester to sleep. There is absolutly no intelligence in this movie! But it's great to watch! It's got great and funny and unique charecter's in it! If you ever have a chance to see this movie, see it! of better yet: tape it! I saw it on Turner Classic Movie's and taped it!
