This is the story of Eddie Foy and the Seven Little Foys and their path to Broadway fame. The film is a child of its time - a piece of pure escapism. Many of the biographical details have been tweeked to make the story flow but who cares? With Bob Hope in the movie you dont expect realism. A highlight of the film is Jimmy Cagney reprising his role as George M Cohan and tapdancing and then performing a soft shoe shuffle with Bob Hope. Hope is good in this film. One of the rare occassions he is acting and not just being Bob Hope. For pure entertainment this should not be missed.
