Betty Grable and Dan Dailey are a married song and dance team who cannot have children. The movie follows the travails as they try and adopt and keep the kids they adopt while performing on their TV show.
Broadway partners Vicky Lane and Dan Christy have a tiff over Christy's womanizing. Jealous Vicky takes up with her old flame and former dance partner, Victor Price, and Dan's career takes a nosedive. In hopes of rekindling their romance and getting Vicky back on the boards with him, Dan follows her to a ritzy resort in the Canadian Rockies, where she and Victor are about to open their new act. But things get complicated when Dan wakes after a bender to find that he's hired an outlandish Latin secretary, Rosita Murphy, which makes Vicky think he's just up to his old tricks again. Written by

The Gordon-Warren song "Run Little Raindrop, Run" sung by Betty Grable and John Payne was written specifically for "The Great American Broadcast" and was to be sung by Alice Faye. The reasons why it was not used in "Broadcast" is not clear although the sheet music was published with the words, "Sung by Alice Faye." See more »
John Payne is wearing a wedding ring on his left hand through out the movie. This is peculiar because he is pursuing Betty Grabel in the movie. See more »
I've just viewed the video of 'Springtime in the Rockies' for perhaps the 50th time and it just keeps getting better. My video runs for 87 minutes; just what is in the missing 4 minutes, if the stated 91 minutes running time is correct, I wonder?
What do I like about this movie? It is beautiful to look at with superb sound that sweeps you back to the 1940s. John Payne and Carmen Miranda never made a better movie. Harry James wisely performs with the band and has few lines. But, if I have to pick out one actor, it is the wonderful Charlotte Greenwood, she of the L O N G legs. Her solo on the dance floor is the highlight of the movie. Betty Grable is nice to look at as well, of course! Then we have Edward Everett Horton and a number of other fine supporting actors who go to make up one of the best musicals to come out of the war years.
