After WW II, a refugee of a Nazi concentration camp (Oysher) arrives in America. Suffering from amnesia, he gets a job as a hotel clerk and is then discovered by Broadway showman Adams. He takes Oysher on as a partner and the two become a successful burlesque-style song and comedy act. But

eventually Oysher tires of show biz and finally becomes a cantor. The script is highly contrived, often on the verge of stupidity. This isn't helped much by uneven direction and too much use of stock footage. Oysher, a veteran of the Yiddish theater, isn't very impressive here until he starts

singing. Adams is okay when he clowns around, but unfortunately the film is mostly tripe. Adams also produced.
