Calling all Gloria Jean fans, Get Hep to Love lets her explore her teen years as well as wow audiences with her operatic singing! She stars as a famous child singer, whose manager and guardian reneges on her promise to give her a rest from concerts. Fed up and anxious for a vacation, Gloria runs away! She's only a kid, though, and she quickly gets caught and sent to an orphanage until she can be identified-which she doesn't want. So, she steals the name and address of Jane Frazee and Robert Paige, parents who have applied for adoption, and shows up on their doorstep.
Jane and Robert take Gloria into their home and hearts, as does next-door neighbor, teenager Donald O'Connor! This movie isn't going to be up for any awards, but it's a typical teen-flick of the 1940s, if you like that genre. If you liked all the Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland movies, you'll probably like the Gloria-and-Donald duo. Keep in mind the title, though: there's lots of "hep" slang that's supposed to be funny but to modern audiences might come across as strange.
