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

In the final TV show sequence, Frankie Laine and Jerome Courtland are shown making different gestures on each of the three monitor screens (which are supposed to be showing the exact same action from different camera angles). See more »

It's all about the music.
19 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Columbia's B musicals with Frankie Laine-Billy Daniels, etc., were all about the music. The plots are just there to, however haltingly, keep things going. Pert Terry Moore pushes tall, gangly, handsome Jerome Courtland to become a singing star. Why not? Courtland (with solos on "Let's Fall In Love", "The Love of a Gypsy" and a duet with Laine on the title song)has a fine voice, if not the performing charisma of the two leads. Daniels, a surprise smash in his first Columbia, keeps up the good work with a warm, relaxed rehearsal in an empty night club with pianist-backup singer Benny Payne, of "Too Marvelous For Words" and "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", later goes full-tilt on "I Get A Kick Out of You". Great camera work on all of Daniels' moments. Laine also gives his usual earnest, energetic and unique approach to his songs, including "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die", "I May Be Wrong" (with Toni Arden, who also gets a solo spot), and a bit of "Pennies From Heaven". Oh. Round tv screens, too! Almost impossible to find on videotape.
