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>

Well, well, well
30 March 1999 | by (Gloucestershire, UK) – See all my reviews

A wonderfully camp and extraordinary musical offering! The story - if you can call it that - is about a simple-minded farmboy who writes songs in his sleep. Ann Miller dances well. Recommended to lovers of the genre - but Astaire and Rogers it ain't.
