A bravura performance from Morgan is the only thing that pulls this weak musical comedy off its knees. Morgan plays an old song-and-dance man who sees radio as the only viable money-making medium open to him. While trying to win his big break in radio, he is attacked on all sides by his

three ex-wives and their children. Morgan bumbles his first big job by staging a "War of the Worlds" type broadcast that gets him canned because of the panic it creates. He then moves into vocal impressions of famous movie stars (Wallace Beery, Al Jolson, Mickey Rooney, and a three-way Clark

Gable, Spencer Tracy, Claudette Colbert exchange from their popular film BOOM TOWN) and is finally a hit. Songs include: "We've Come a Long Way Together" (Ted Koehler, Sammy Stept), "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny" (James Bland), "A Handful of Stars" (Jack Lawrence, Ted Shapiro), and "You Were

Meant for Me" (Arthur Freed, Nacio Herb Brown).
