When he learns that a gangster has taken over his nightclub and murdered his partner, returning WW2 hero Joe Miracle steals the money from the club's safe and hides in a settlement home, while the mob is on his tail.
A goofy Columbia musical: let's remake Hawks' HIS GIRL Friday as a musical, only instead of Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell and Ralph Bellamy, we'll have Keenan Wynn, Evelyn Keyes and Allyn Joslyn, and instead of it being about newspapers and death, it will be about --- nightclub producers!
Sounds like a waste of time, doesn't it? Well, despite the undeniable talent of the people involved -- as well as that of director Sylvan Simon, yes it is. Except for the musical numbers and those are standouts. The songs aren't much, decent but forgettable, but dance director Nick Castle knew how to choreograph a dance number so well that they were lifting them five years later for MGM musicals. And then, of course, there's Ann Miller. When she starts tapping, the movie becomes not just good but great.
But there's too much time between the musical numbers. Worthwhile, but not great.
