Delilah Lee is the star of husband Jeff Ames' Broadway show when she starts to suspect he has been exchanging more than contracts with the show's vampish backer. Alimony and amnesia become the order of the day.
One point for the technicolour costumes, 1 point for Betty Grable and 1 point for the uptempo song and dance numbers even though Dan Dailey manages to completely murder the song "Don't Bring Lulu".
Dailey (Skid) is a vaudeville entertainer along with wife Betty Grable (Bonny). He gets an opportunity elsewhere but messes up and returns to play happy families.....Wow......how boring was that! The cast are unlikable apart from Grable but even she demonstrates unreasonable and unrealistic behavioural traits when it comes to her relationship with Dailey. This film gave my wife cushion rage which manifested itself at the end of the film. We wanted to like this film but just couldn't. I dozed off as it was so boring. Dailey was nominated for an oscar!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!! It's a corny load of nonsense.
