Overview

Matinee Idol/Frank Capra's American Dream

Package Description: "When Ginger Bolivar's amateur stock company is invited to join superstar Don Wilson's Broadwy review, little does Ginger (Bessie Love) know that recently hired bit-part actor Harry Mann (Johnnie Walker) and Don are one and the same. Don, you see, believes the oh-so-serious Bolibar Players are oh-so-unintentionally funny, and has brought theim to the Big Apple as a comedy act. But when "Harry" falls for Ginger, Don soon learns that humiliating the woman he loves is no laughing matter!"
