Movie Info

Jack Benny has his first starring role in this musical. He plays the president of a fledgling advertising agency, Mac Brewster. Brewster has very few clients and so works his tail off to please his biggest client, silver magnate Alan Townsend. He presents his wealthy client with a wide variety of musical acts. Meanwhile, Paula, who is secretly a professional model, endeavors to become the Townsend Silver girl so she can become classified as a debutante and be invited to the Artists and Models Ball where she hopes to become queen. Unfortunately, snooty Cynthia, a real debutante, seems to be destined to win the prize. Musical mayhem and romance ensues when she gets involved with Mac Brewster. The musical numbers are top drawer as are the songs, which include the Oscar nominated "Whispers in the Dark."more
