Storyline

Marathon Pictures is stuck with Billy Doran, Whiz Quiz radio show star but a flop in Hollywood. Ex-child star Tiny Barlow suggests that the studio remake "Skippy", the film that made him famous, with himself as coach for little Billy. A. J. Colder, Marathon's Mighty Mogul, agrees. Joan Winslow, a contract player who has never had a part, is picked to replace balky Brenda Lee in Marathon's monster musical of the year. Tiny poses as a big shot and takes credit for getting Joan the role. They are soon seen everywhere together as Tiny is taking advantage of her publicity build-up for his own gain, until he suddenly finds out he is in love with her and confesses his duplicity. This occurs when Colder has forbid Joan to see Tiny anymore, directing her to only be seen with important people who can help her career, and Tiny thinks it is because she has dumped him. He enters into a conspiracy with Brenda's agent, Mickey Fadden, to make Brenda give up her strike and accept the role Colder gave ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
