Storyline

June Daily, daughter of stockbroker J. C. Daily, is engaged to father's assistant Richard Burton, but is enamored of tap-dancing elevator operator Hal Smith. J.C. has a hot tip on stock for the Upsadaisy Elevator Company. When Richard goes out of town, June invites Hal to dinner with J.C. J.C. is no snob, and seizes the opportunity to ask an "expert" about Upsadaisy Elevators. Hal gives them a ringing endorsement, and J.C. buys all the stock he can get. When Richard learns this, he breaks his engagement to June, thinking J.C. has gone broke. But the stock flourishes, and J.C. introduces Hal as his new partner and future son-in-law. Lots of songs and dance in 21 minutes. Written by Anonymous

Love in an Elevator
20 August 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Hal Le Roy has his "Ups and Downs" as a tap-dancing elevator operator. He romances perky, rich elevator passenger June Allyson. After Ms. Allyson invites Mr. Le Roy out for a dinner date, he walks off the job. In order to show Allyson a good time, the poor Le Roy tries to get some money from tailor friend Phil Silvers.

Mr. Le Roy's an outstanding dancer, but the film's structure and sub-plots - something about taking stock in elevators, and a rival suitor named Richard - are very weak. Ms. Allyson and Mr. Silvers show only a hint of their later personas. Additionally, there are a couple of unrelated musical "showcase" numbers.

*** Ups and Downs (10/9/37) Roy Mack ~ Hal Le Roy, June Allyson, Phil Silvers
