Painful clunker that’s only as bearable as it is because of the cast. Doris Day, ,  and are vaudevillians trapped in Miami without a dime to their name. They end up working at a posh hotel to bring in some dough and, luckily, find themselves in the way of a successful Broadway composer () who is looking to produce his own show. Even luckier, Cummings catches Day’s luscious blondness strutting down the street one day and a star is born! There’s a problem, however, since he’s also trying to avoid the romantic advances of a rich Texas baron’s daughter (Martha Hyer) whose happiness influences the possibility of an investment in the show itself. A few nice songs perk things up, but for the most part it’s a dull affair that is very difficult to get through.
