Description by OLDIES.com:
With those gams and that voice, High "C" Susie packs 'em in at a Bowery honkytonk located several blocks and a world away from where her Beantown family thinks she's singing: the grand opera house. Then her prim and disapproving sister comes to town...and promptly falls in love with singing, dancing and a handsome young man-about-town. Kathryn Grayson and June Allyson are Two Sisters from Boston in a sprightly musical set in glamorous, gas-lit New York and featuring young Peter Lawford for a touch of romance. Two class acts representing high art (Wagnerian tenor Lauritz Melchior as an opera star) and low comedy (beloved funnyman Jimmy Durante in a movie-stealing performance as the peripatetic honky-tonk proprietor) lend polish and pizzazz to the fun.
A couple of Bowery beer-hall songbirds are in for quite an evening when their Boston relatives--who think that one of them is an opera diva--come to visit. Now "High-C Suzie" has to finagle her way onstage at the Met!
