Storyline

An arrogant young actress doesn't want to play "young" parts anymore, and runs off. The studio replaces her with the president of her fan club, who just happens to be a lookalike. Meanwhile, some other former child actors, trying to put on a show for the GIs, will be able to do it only if they can get the young actress to be in it, so they set out to persuade her to be in their show--not knowing that she's isn't who they think she is.

Post-Fox Withers
17 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was Jane Withers' first grown-up role after her child-star days had ended at her former studio, 20th Century Fox. She transitions nicely. William Demarest plays her conniving Hollywood agent, and a batch of other real-life ex-child stars help Jane put on a revue to benefit the war effort. The dialogue is very interesting– especially the way the grown-up performers discuss their earlier days in show biz. One of these poor souls is Baby Sandy, heading into retirement and kindergarten at the tender age of five! Henry Wilcoxon, who previously appeared in other Withers vehicles at Fox, also stars. He is said to have donated his entire salary to charity.
