Movie Info

After quitting his job as a waiter in Chicago, Indy heads to New York, following a tip for summertime employment. Indy gets much, much more than he bargained for when he signs up as a stagehand at the new Broadway extravaganza, George White's Scandals. While the work is exhausting, what's truly wearing Indy down is trying to juggle three new girlfriends -- without having each learn of the others. His new friend George Gershwin is of little help, finding humor and -- of course -- song in Indy's predicament. First, there's Peggy, the country mouse visiting the Big Apple for the first time. She has aspirations for Broadway stardom, but is at first wary of Indy, mistaking him for a big city masher. Indy earns her trust, and even lands her a part in the Scandals, where she can showcase her amazing voice. Then, there's Kate, the Bohemian poet who opens her apartment door for Indy when he's stranded without a place to live. She's unlike anyone Indy's ever met, a headstrong, self-possessed woman of the 1920s with untraditional definitions of relationship. Indy is entranced by her intellect, and even lands a spot at the Algonquin round table to meet with Kate's witty writer friends, Alexander Woollcott, Dorothy Parker and others. Finally, there's Gloria -- the wealthy socialite. Indy is transfixed by her beauty, and sweet-talks her into backing George White's musical. Her father bankrolls the Scandals, meaning that Indy can't do a thing to jeopardize his relationship with her. When the curtain rises on opening night, Indy not only has to keep the performance running, but he finds that all three girls are in the same theater. This chapter of Young Indiana Jones is not only a comic romp, but also includes wonderful production numbers as well as a marvelous musical score.
