Two aging playboys are both after the same attractive young woman, but she fends them off by claiming that she plans to remain a virgin until her wedding night. Both men determine to find a way around her objections.
In later interviews about the film, Steve Allen admitted that the real Benny Goodman (who he had met during the making of the film) was not nearly as pleasant an individual as Allen had portrayed him in the movie. See more »
At the end of the movie, Benny plays "Memories of You" to Alice Hammond seated at the Carnegie Hall concert. "Memories of You" was never played at the event. See more »
I loved this film. Huge Donna Reed fan, and I think this is one of her best films aside from "From Here To Eternity" that she did in the 1950's. Finally a movie about someones life made in the 1950's without June Allyson. The close up's Donna has in this film make you melt, she is and always was even in her 60's breath taking! And this movie shows that. Her and Steve Allen who plays Benny Goodman have great chemistry, and I have read that Donna & Steve look very much like Mr. & Mrs. Goodman but didn't act like them. According to Steve Benny Goodman was brilliant but wasn't a very nice man. And surprisingly this film didn't do as well as the previous "Glen Miller Story". Which I found to be alittle dull. Anyways great film a recommend it to everyone!
