From upper crust to bread crusts! When wealthy Mr. Drake goes broke, the servants hatch a plan to restore his fortune and save their jobs: have a lovely maid pose as Drake's debutante daughter, hoping she'll land a rich beau. Soon, a suitor arrives. "Good morning," he says, "My name is Frank Sinatra." Making his acting debut (he was a vocalist in earlier films) in this merry musical comedy, Sinatra plays the boy next door and (naturally) knows his way around a song, taking on five here, soloing on "The Music Stopped," "A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening" and "I Couldn't Sleep a Wink Last Night." Sinatra may be the enduring main attraction, but he's not the only star on view: Victor Borge, Leon Errol, Barbara Hale, Jack Haley, Michele Morgan, Mel Torme, Mary Wickes and Dooley Wilson are also on hand. Encore!
