Movie Info

In this romantic musical comedy, a stage director loses his job after nearly causing a major star to suffer a breakdown. To make his way back to Broadway, he engineers and ingenious plot whereby he takes a girl from a Brooklyn carnival and convinces his peers that she is a popular French star. His ploy is a brilliant success and along the way he and his charge fall in love. Songs include: "Fifi from the Folies Bergere," "I Want to Learn about Love" (sung by Lamour), "Night," "I Keep Telling Myself" (Lester Lee, Allan Roberts), and "Let's Fall in Love" (Harold Arlen, Ted Koehler, sung by Lamour).more
