Anna Maria Alberghetti,
Stanley Snodgrass, perhaps Broadway's clumsiest (if not oldest and most out-of-tune) chorus boy, finds himself unceremoniously ousted from yet another show. Due to an infamous slasher threatening the show's leads, Stanley finds himself brought back as the headliner, unaware that he's being used as bait by police. Even with Detective Logan secretly posing as Stanley's valet, producer Harry Fraser fears Jack the Slasher may not put in an appearance soon enough to prevent Stanley murdering his show.Written by
It looks like this was the last film that Claude Binyon directed, although he did WRITE for TV and movies for another ten years after this. Both he and Hope were already about 50, so they were getting on up there. At one point, Hope even says "Look at me - the world's oldest chorus boy!" But with that supporting cast (Fred Clark and William Demarest, Rosemary Clooney, Arlene Dahl, even Nancy Kulp in a nonspeaking role -- all big names now) the show must go on.... but it just wasn't the same without BING......in this one, there's a killer on the loose, and they need Stanley Snodgrass' help to catch the killer. Fred Clark plays the same stuffy, bellowing character he played in How to Marry a Millionaire and Burns & Allen Show; here he's the show director Harry Fraser, that needs Stanley's "help". Things move a little slow without Crosby, and also the fact that its in color didn't help; might have worked better if it were done in black & white...?
