Storyline

One thing leads to another, and when Tim's show rolls on to Chicago a new Mrs. O'Connor comes along as incompetent chorus girl. Hollywood beckons, and we follow the star careers of the O'Connor family in silents and talkies. Includes good imitation "silents" with classic cameo by Buster Keaton.

Shirley Temple rip-off
10 January 2019 | by HotToastyRagSee all my reviews

Although parts of You're My Everything are adorable, one of the major storylines is such a direct copy of Shirley Temple, it's amazing the Temple family didn't sue. They probably couldn't, because the studio was 20th Century Fox; Fox probably gave permission on behalf of the Temples.

Anne Baxter falls in love with musical performer Dan Dailey in the 1920s, but when he goes to Hollywood to hopefully pursue his acting, the studio executives like Anne's accidental talent better! So, Dan takes a backseat while Anne becomes a silent film star. The movie shows a couple of black-and-white shorts that are really cute, and one of them includes a ten-second cameo by Buster Keaton! When Anne and Dan start a family, that's when everything changes-and that's where Shari Robinson comes in pretending to be Shirley Temple. She's a curly-haired, grinning, tap-dancing little girl who makes a movie set in the Civil War, where her dad is injured and she makes friends with a black house slave, whom she tap dances with. Anything else? Yes, there is something else: Shari sings "On the Good Ship Lollipop".

Anne and Dan's romance is very sweet, and easily the best part of the movie. They're reluctant to get married, since Dan is poor and Anne is too much of a lady to propose, so her well-intentioned aunt Anne Revere plays matchmaker. All through their rocky marriage, you can tell the foundation is good and that real love is present. For a light mock-Hollywood movie, it's nice to see a good romance instead of a fluffy one.
