Trivia

The use of color TV images in this film is not an anachronism. The TV station shown is a CBS affiliate, and CBS had already developed a color TV system when this film was made. Their system ultimately failed because it was incompatible - only viewers with a CBS-made color set could receive its broadcasts. The color TV system finally adopted in 1957 was developed by NBC and its broadcasts could be received on black-and-white sets, albeit not in color. See more »

Goofs

Filmed in 1951, the film has a contemporary 1951 setting, but color television broadcasts were still a thing of the future at that time; the receivers shown in the film were Zenith black and white sets, not color. See more »

Wonderful Franklie Laine Musical
26 September 2012 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

During 1951 to 1955 Jonie Taps made wonderful light hearted musicals for Columbia Pictures. They all had familiar songs and you always felt good when leaving the theatre. Frankie Laine was always the lead and this time he had Terry Moore of "Come Back Little Sheba" and tall Jerome Cowan singing and the love interest. This film was about the radio/television industry with early color television. I just saw this cute musical and it brought a smile to my face. I wish Columbia would release these Frankie Laine/Jonie Tap musicals. Others in the musical series are "Rainbow Round My Shoulder," "Bring Your Smile Along," and "He Laughed Last."
