Plot Summary
Popular vaudeville performer Eddie Foy (Bob Hope) is on a roll when he weds beautiful Italian singer Madeleine Morando (Milly Vitale). The couple has seven children, who are brought up mostly by Madeleine and her sister, while Eddie's fame continues to grow. Tragedy strikes, however, when Madeleine dies of pneumonia, leaving Eddie and his family devastated. Eventually, his manager, Barney Green (George Tobias), convinces Eddie to incorporate his kids into his act, with amusingly mixed results.
