Classic musical comedy (and sequel to 'Here Comes Mr Jordan'), which showcases Rita Hayworth's talents as a commedienne rather than the femme fatale of 'Gilda' and 'The Lady From Shanghai'. Hayworth plays Terpischore, the Greek goddess of song and dance, who happens to observe, from her heavenly heights, the rehearsals of a Broadway musical about the Greek muses. Outraged by the slack production values she wastes no time in coming down to earth to show them how it should be done. Hayworth auditions for the lead role, gets the part and then enters into headlong battles with the director. Needless to say it is all all right on the night.
