A musical portrait of composer/singer/dancer George M. Cohan. From his early days as a child-star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life- story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows for which he composed his famous songs. Written by

Did You Know?
Despite the film's storyline, and Cohan's own lifelong claim, that he was born on the 4th of July (and his having written the song "Yankee Doodle Dandy" containing that very line), George M. Cohan
was in fact born on the 3rd of July (1878). See more
