"...[The music] is tops..."
Doris Day is a small-town girl who helps a jaded and struggling musician (Frank Sinatra) find happiness through her love and support. Ethel Barrymore gives a fine supporting performance. A remake of 1938's "Four Daughters."
Doris Day and Frank Sinatra star in this remake of the 1938 hit "Four Daughters." In this version, Gregory Tuttle has just three daughters, one of whom falls for a melancholy musician named Barney Sloan. But she's already betrothed to Alex Burke, the man who hired Barney to arrange the music for a musical comedy. That doesn't prevent Laurie and Barney from eloping. But his insecurity is so deep and so destructive it nearly costs them their happiness... and his life. Features a classic song score, performed by Day and Sinatra.
