Storyline

Frankie Foster and Stanley Benson are a pair of small-potatoes performers. Both try to make it to the big-time after winning an amateur talent contest. Though this leads them to a few professional gigs, something is missing from their act and they are not popular. Believing a little cash will boost their career, Frankie heads for Washington, D.C. to see if her wealthy father will help them. En route Frankie is mistaken for the wife of the well-known pilot Johnny Pearson and ends up in his suite having to pretend she is his spouse. When the pilot meets her, romantic sparks fly.

A "little white lie" changed a girl's entire life and career!
18 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

A struggling song and dance actress tells a little white lie to obtain passage on an airliner bound for Washington. Everything gets out of control when the fib is believed by the media! She meets Mr. Wonderful, she becomes famous, and her Off-Broadway show becomes a hit. Dennis Day plays her bewildered boyfriend, but his voice is right on the money. Many great character actors add to the mix to make it a fun romp.
