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 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!

Instead, Columbia chose to co-star Kelly in "Cover Girl" with Rita Hayworth. See more

It only feels so bad in the morning cause it feels so good the night before.
