Sinatra's first big starring role in a musical comedy about a bankrupt businessman who schemes with his household staff to come up with some cash. They choose to hoodwink the boy-next-door (Sinatra), who happens to be filthy rich, into marrying a maid who's posing as the businessman's daughter. The plan is scuttled when con man Borge happens onto the scene, imitating a wealthy aristocrat. OK musical, but mostly notable for young Frank. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Song ("I Couldn't Sleep a Wink Last Night").
Frank Sinatra's debut film role, though he sang one song on camera in "Reveille with Beverly."
The Turner videocassette is part of the "RKO Collection."
