Bracken is a nobody who is accidentally pushed into singing a tune with Lynn's all-girl orchestra at a small-town benefit show. He opens his mouth and out comes the familiar crooning sounds of Bing Crosby. The audience goes wild and publicity soars. Lynn brings the pseudo-Crosby to New

York with her and gets investors to put forward some cash. She mistakenly sells them shares totalling 125 percent of the profits. Her near-disastrous financial management is all cleared up by the finale. An agreeable little spoof on superstardom and the bobby-soxer crowd. The cast does a fine job

of entertaining, though Lake is unfortunately wasted in a minor role as a booking agent. Bing never shows up on the screen, but his four sons do--as part of Bracken's audience. Songs include: "June Comes Around Every Year," "Out Of This World" (Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen), "I'd Rather Be Me"

(Eddie Cherkose, Felix Bernard, Sam Coslow), "All I Do Is Beat That Golden Drum" (Coslow, sung by Cass Daley), "It Takes A Little Bit More" (Coslow), "A Sailor With An Eight-Hour Pass" (Ben Raleigh, Bernie Wayne, sung by Daley) and a version of Chopin's "Minute Waltz," which the girls play as "The

Ghost Of Mr. Chopin" (Coslow).
