Synopsis

William Webster was once a big-time silent film star. But in the age of talkies, he's a mere security guard for Paramount Studios. His sailor son, Johnny, however, thinks his dad is a major executive. Now, with Johnny visiting, William must carry out the illusion that he indeed is a big deal, and with the help of switchboard operator Polly Judson, he stages an elaborate series of musical numbers with the hottest Hollywood stars.
