Description by OLDIES.com:
Booted out of boarding school for singing Mendelssohn in swing time, young Judy Bellaire returns to her wacky theatrical family and finds them teetering on the brink of ruin. Judy's brainstorm: put on a show starring herself and the family servants. Not the soundest financial decision perhaps - unless Judy is played by Judy Garland and the servants are Allan Jones and Fanny Brice. Judy shows great promise of stardom in this effervescent 1938 musical, socking over five numbers, including a laugh-filled Baby Snooks song with Brice. The following year would bring The Wizard of Oz... and fulfillment of that promise.
A quirky theatrical family and their equally eccentric hired help are the subject of this MGM musical. Dad's a frustrated playwright, Mom's an emotionally unstable actress and the kids sing, so they put on a show. It's not even as good as it sounds unless you have a bottomless obsession with Garland.
