Plot

New England schoolteacher Nancy Willows (Constance Towers) leaves her school and fiancee David Parker (William Leslie) to go to New York City for a career as a lyricist. Her neighbours across the hall are an easy going singer named Jerry Dennis (Frankie Laine) and his hotheaded songwriter roommate Marty Adams (Keefe Brasselle) who is incapable of writing acceptable lyrics for his songs.

  • Mario Siletti as Ricardo

    Quine and Edwards would subsequently write He Laughed Last for Laine. Edwards had previously written several scripts for Quine to direct: Sound Off was a 1952 service comedy starring Mickey Rooney; Rainbow Round My Shoulder was an earlier Laine vehicle from the same team; and All Ashore was Quine and Edwards' variation on On the Town teaming Rooney and Dick Haymes. Haymes also starred in their Cruisin' Down the River. Edwards directed second unit on Quine's Drive a Crooked Road, which cast Rooney against type and featured Quine and Edwards' script. Edwards continued working with Quine after his launching his own directing career. Their latterday efforts included the early Jack Lemmon films: My Sister Eileen, Operation Mad Ball, and The Notorious Landlady. Quine and Edwards also created the short-lived sitcom The Mickey Rooney Show, and developed Rooney's 1954 spoof, The Atomic Kid, for Republic Pictures.
