The vaudeville dance team of Don Hewes and Nadine Hale break up when Nadine leaves him for a solo career; thinking such a loss can be easily replaced, Hewes hires an inexperienced chorus girl, Hannah Brown, and tries to remake her in Nadine's mold. Magnificent Technicolor MGM musical, dripping with schmaltz. Won an Oscar for Best Score of a Musical.
