The Norwick family has had a successful run on the vaudeville circuit, but now some of the family wants out. Mom is ready to retire on the family's farm, and daughter June wants to quit now that she's engaged. That only leaves Dad and his son Bert, who are happy to work as a twosome. Soon Bert's love of baseball overtakes his show biz ambitions, especially after he's offered a major league contract to play. Now he has to figure out how to break the news to his dad. Written by

This musical is different than others, being that it's about a struggling family, where the father aspires to put his family back in show business.
Each family member, however, has his or her own aspirations and although they love the other family members, they want to "go their own way". It's a delightful musical with many songs most of us musical movie goers have heard before, but in a little different light. I enjoyed it. and when I hear some of those songs, I am reminded of this particular movie. Perhaps it didn't get the "press" that other musical movies have, but it just hit me in that special way that made it easy to remember.
