In this film, Frank Sinatra introduced the now standard "Time After Time", which charted at #17 in 1947. It was later re recorded, by Frank, in 1959 as the B side to "French Foreign Legion". In 1960, Frankie Ford's rendition of the song charted at #75 US. Interestingly, that version fared much better than all, in Brooklyn, reaching NYC's Top 10. In 1966, Chris Montez' version peaked at #36 US. See more »

Time after time....the plots of these pictures don't change
Minor MGM musical with the usual lightweight framework providing the stars a chance to break out in song. If you enjoy that type of movie than this will be a pleasant diversion especially since it introduced the beautiful ballad *Time After Time" which is performed in various versions several times throughout the film. However if you're looking for any semblance of reality this isn't the picture for you. Frank Sinatra and Kathryn Grayson are in fine voice and Jimmy Durante his usual warm, wisecracking somewhat befuddled self. Gloria Grahame although prominently billed, due to a best supporting actress nomination that year, is in and out of the picture after the first five minutes.
