A homesick soldier returns from WWII Germany to Brooklyn, moves in with his high school janitor Jimmy Durante, falls in love with Kathryn Grayson and tries very hard to succeed as a singer. Some good songs including Time After Time. Sinatra did not appreciate Lee Mortimer's review of this film, and punched his lights out.
