Lose a Promotion and Gain a Dream!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Vint loses a job promotion, the family takes him out to the Bigger Jigger Bar and Restaurant where it is Amateur Night. To lift his spirits, Mama, Naomi, and Fran all suggest for him to go on stage with his Fred Astaire number and sing "Puttin on the Ritz" with Fran on the piano like he did at a recent family reunion. By the way, I believe Ken Berry began his career in vaudeville or tap-dancing into show business. Regardless, he knows how to tap-dance. When he wins the prize of $100.00 and is going to perform for an upcoming night. He decides to change his name to Johnny something, give up the hat and cane, and Fran on the piano. Of course, Mama realizes that the contest has turned him into a monster which makes Naomi the bride of Frankenstein.
