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.
