Storyline

One of those where some of the actors play a character with the same name, but no one is playing 'Self," although Zsa Zsa Gabor comes close. Verne Brand, a G. I. from Tennessee with a good singing voice, is talked into going to New York City after he and his buddies, Al Fisher and Lou Marks, are discharged from the U. S. Army. There, they talk former-bookie-turned-record-company-head "Sunny" Moon into signing Verne. Moon and his vice-president, 'Rocky" Graziano, give Verne a publicity build-up by getting his name into the newspaper gossip columns, and movie-star Zsa Zsa Gabor shows some interest in Verne. This causes Verne's home-town sweetheart, Marietta (played by June Carter long before she became June Carter Cash), to come to the big city and check the situation out. Verne, a hot-discovery, is signed to appear on Art Ford's television variety-program, as a battle for ratings between Ford and Lew Parker, on another network. Ford, of course, sweeps the Neilsen's with Verne as a ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Might be in the running for worst picture
7 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This picture always has been my choice as worst picture of all time. Imagine Zaa Zaa Gabor in silken evening gown raving about the "wonders of country music." She stars in a cast of talentless people doing not much of anything why'll a sound track is in deep need of lip sync.

This black and white "farce" was decorated with sets built in haste and with limited funds, then decorated with hay bales scattered about, on which set a group of "hillbilly" extras obviously knowing they were performing in a stinker and wondering I suppose if they really were going to get paid for their efforts.

If you can think of some defect in a film you will most likely find it in this one.
