Movie Info

Frank Burt (Dan Dailey) is a vaudeville performer who drafts young Myrtle McKinley (Betty Grable) for a theatrical production. During a successful run as a stage team, Myrtle and Frank fall in love, marry and have two children. Myrtle goes into semi-retirement, but is later lured back to the spotlight, and their act is able to conjure the old magic.

    One of Betty's biggest hits does contain some wonderful songs and flashy numbers but she made better films than this.
