In 1924, stage-struck Boston blueblood Hannah Adams picks up musical star Tim O'Connor and takes him home for dinner. One thing leads to another, and when Tim's show rolls on to Chicago a new Mrs. O'Connor comes along as incompetent chorus girl. Hollywood beckons, and we follow the star careers of the O'Connor family in silents and talkies. Includes good imitation "silents" with classic cameo by Buster Keaton. Written by

A sort of poor man's "Singin' in the Rain" and not bad at all...
Transition from silent to sound movies has been used in countless movies, most successfully in SINGIN' IN THE RAIN--but you won't find any complaints from me about using this ploy in YOU'RE MY EVERYTHING.
Indeed, this is a pleasant musical romp with Dan Dailey giving one of his finest performances as a trooper who can really sing and dance with the best of them. Story deals breezily with mismatched spouses (Baxter and Dailey) pursuing careers in vaudeville and silent movies during the '20s and '30s. The sprightly song numbers are the film's chief charm but the pleasant cast is up to the acting chores too.
Reminds me of the sort of nostalgic charm other movies of this period had--films like HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY GAL? and MARGIE. It passes the time pleasantly and is a reminder of what some musicals were like during the Golden Age of Hollywood.
