Joey Evans is charming, handsome, funny, talented, and a first class, A-number-one heel. When Joey meets the former chorus girl ("She used to be 'Vera...with the Vanishing Veils'") and now rich widow Vera Simpson, the two lecherous souls seem made for each other. That is, until Linda English comes along. Linda is a "mouse on the chorus line" and built like there's no tomorrow. But she's the typical good little girl from a good little home -- just the right ingredient to louse up Joey's cushy set up. Written by
JOY STORY OF JOEY...(the heel)!

When Joey inveigles his way into employment at Ned Galvin's Nightclub by his rendition of "I didn't know what time it was", out front in the audience is a dating couple whose evening together is somewhat frosty. During the song the ice melts and eventually they are seen cuddling. Unfortunately, Joey's magic spell is short-lived, as, at the song's conclusion, the same couple are again seen in long-shot, but alas they are once again sitting on either side of the large round table.
