Danny Kaye plays a set of twins, a bookworm and a nightclub comic. When Buzzy Belew, the comic is murdered by the mob, his spirit goes to see his brother Edwin dingle. When Dingle refuses to go on stage to convince the mob that Bellew is still alive, Bellew gets into his body. Together they try to solve the murder and get the girl! Lots of great one-liners and a couple of catchy songs, notably Bali-Boogie, and more than a couple of Danny's trademark off-beat dance-sequences.
With Virginia Mayo and Vera-Ellen on hand to provide dual love interests, this is a must-see for fans of Technicolour Hollywood. THis is Sam Goldwyn at his colourful best!
