Betty Grable and Dan Dailey are a married song and dance team who cannot have children. The movie follows the travails as they try and adopt and keep the kids they adopt while performing on their TV show.
Radio star Kitty Moran, long married to partner Jack, finds she's pregnant, but miscarries. For a change, the couple turn their act into a series on early TV and try to adopt a baby, finally acquiring a girl in a somewhat back alley manner. Complications follow amid a series of musical numbers. Written by

Feature film debut of Mitzi Gaynor - who had only been in a previous film short billed as 'Mitzi Gerber.' See more »
During the Cosmo Cosmetics number, all of the monitors in the television control room are in color. Expensive color sets would never have been used in a real TV control room, and in fact weren't even available in 1950. See more »
Usually I love the Fox musicals...but this one is just boring. The dancing and the songs can't save this one.
And how nice to know that they actually had color TV video cameras and color TV receiver sets in 1950!!! The special effects people couldn't make the spliced-in TV images in B&W I guess???? Bad editing. And don't you just envy Betty Grable's push-down monitor. Wow, wish I had one (not).
And that "baby" that the Morans illegally "adopt" (then they get her back later, still under suspicious circumstances)...and the Morans never had given "baby" a name? Unless I missed it along the boring way. Then old Miss Adoption Agency has a quick change of heart and offers them a boy. Then Betty is pregnant again after all!!!!
All this makes for a very unbelievable story.
