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
From Your Pal, Columbia!

This is one of Frank Sinatra
's few post-From Here to Eternity
(1953) movies in which he did not receive top billing, which surprisingly went to Rita Hayworth
. Sinatra was, by that time, a bigger star, and his title role was predominant. When asked about the billing, Sinatra replied, "Ladies first." He was also quoted as saying that, as it was a Columbia film, Hayworth should have top billing because, "For years, she WAS Columbia Pictures", and that with regard to being billed "between" Hayworth and Kim Novak
, "That's a sandwich I don't mind being stuck in the middle of." As Columbia's biggest star, Hayworth had been top billed in every film since Cover Girl
(1944), but her tenure was soon to end with_They Came to Cordura (1959)_. See more
