The story of a husband who didn't have time to come home! Daddy couldn't get home, so the kids all trouped down to Broadway and got into the act. The incredible, incomparable story of America's most fabulous family!
Signor Foy, we are going to have a baby.
Madeleine Morando Foy:
I wanted to tell you, Eddie, but Clara said to wait.
If you're interested, it happened in Capri.
...Oh, well, thank you. Thank you, one and all. It is nice of you to let me im on it. There any other late bulletins?
You seem to know everything! What's it gonna be - a boy or a girl?
It will be an Italian!
It's one thing we're getting through customs!

Companion film to Jimmy Cagney's Yankee Doodle Dandy, with Bob Hope as Broadway's Eddie Foy. Jimmy Cagney reprises his Yankee Doodle role as Foy's friendly rival George M. Cohan in a spectacular dance sequence. A far cry from his lighter other comedies, Bob Hope has never been better. Great for anyone seeking a great family entertainment or a colorful musical.
