This film has a cast of Giants of the Silver Screen, Frank Sinatra looking like a baby face who was American's Top Male Singer of the 1940's, every young ladies heart throb!

The cast of June Allyson, Van Heflin and Lena Horne "Stormy Weather" '40s and even Angela Lansbury, of "Murder She Wrote" appeared in this great film.
