who is a crooner for the "Hit Parade" and switches roles with him. Gambler Carroll begins to enjoy the adoration of his double's female fans (something the effeminate Carroll apparently didn't take advantage of), while crooner Carroll begins to rack up lots of chips at the gambling tables.

Eventually, after both men have learned more about themselves from the experience, they return to their normal roles. Songs include "Square Dance Samba," "You're So Nice," "How Would I Know?" "Wishes Come True," "You Don't Know the Other Side of Me" (Al Rinker, Floyd Huddleston), "Boca Chica" (Sy

Miller, Betty Garrett).
