Come Blow Your Horn

After his younger brother, Buddy (Tony Bill), shows up one day, ladies' man Alan Baker (Frank Sinatra) finds out Buddy has finally moved out of their father's home. Alan allows Buddy to stay with him, and even teaches him how to be a suave, hip Manhattanite. Buddy quickly adopts Alan's lifestyle, while their father, Harry (Lee J. Cobb), grows frustrated at the irresponsibility of his sons. When Alan starts to realize the shallowness of his life, he worries that it is too late to save Buddy.
