Frank Sinatra made his film debut in this picture, with a brief performance as a nightclub singer proving to be the only bright spot in a haphazard musical. Story evolves around three sisters, accompanied by Wheeler, who come to Las Vegas to lay claim to an inheritance. In the process

they make a fortune gambling, quickly lose it, then panhandle enough money to open their own club, but this falls through. Eventually they get around to the business of the estate which requires outwitting a crooked lawyer. Except for a few musical numbers, this picture has little to offer. The

plot is weak and often tedious, and the script fails to integrate musical numbers into the story line. Sinatra sings "I'll Never Smile Again" (Ruth Lowe). Other songs include: "Song of India" (Nikolai Andreevich Rimski-Korsakov, arranged by "Red" Bone), "On Miami Shore" (William LeBaron, Victor

Jacobi), "I've Gotta Ride," "Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary" (Frank Loesser, Burton Lane), and "Dolores" (Loesser, Louis Alter), the last of which was nominated for an Oscar.
