Movie Info

I Love a Bandleader is an easy-to-take vehicle for personable orchestra leader Phil Harris. "Old Curly" is cast as housepainter Phil Burton, who while suffering from amnesia imagines that he's the leader of a popular swing band. While suffering this delusion, Burton falls in love with perky Ann Carter (Leslie Brooks). When his memory returns, Burton returns to his meek, untalented self-but not for long, if Ann has anything to say about it! Costarring with Harris is his fellow Jack Benny Show cohort, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, who does his usual flawless comic job-and even gets to sing!
