Storyline

Danny has been in the army for 4 years, yet all he thinks about is Brooklyn and how great it is. When he returns after the war, he soon finds that Brooklyn is not so nice after all. He is able to share a place with Nick, the janitor of his old High School, and get a job as a singer in a music store. He also meets Leo, a talented pianist and his teacher Anne, whose dream is to singing Opera. When Jamie arrives from England, Danny tries to show him the Brooklyn experience and help him compose modern swing music. Together, these four also try to help Leo get the Brooklyn Music scholarship.

Trivia

In this film, Frank Sinatra introduced the now standard "Time After Time", which charted at #17 in 1947. It was later re recorded, by Frank, in 1959 as the B side to "French Foreign Legion". In 1960, Frankie Ford's rendition of the song charted at #75 US. Interestingly, that version fared much better than all, in Brooklyn, reaching NYC's Top 10. In 1966, Chris Montez' version peaked at #36 US. See more »

Surprisingly fresh and entertaining
12 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This movie deserves some rediscovery as a pre-50s gem of innocent witty dialogue, fresh performances, entertaining sets and as well as for its obliviousness to international boundaries. Jimmy Durante is a standout who well deserved his fame as a beloved comic.
