Doris Day in a high-stepping musical feast!

C'mon along and join Doris Day and a top supporting cast in a high-stepping musical feast - the infectious LULLABY OF BROADWAY!

Melinda Howard (Doris Day) a young up-and-coming musical star, has just arrived back in New York, totally unaware that her mother Jessica (Gladys George), once the biggest star on Broadway, is now singing in a dingy tavern. The mansion which Jessica used to own has now been taken over by a rich brewery magnate and his wife (S.Z. Sakall and Florence Bates).

Old-time vaudevilians Lefty and Gloria (Billy DeWolfe and Anne Triola), now the butler and maid of the house, take Melinda under their wing and uphold the ruse that Jessica is just 'out of town'...

Complications arise when Melinda finds herself on the cusp of Broadway fame, just as Jessica's cover is blown! Gene Nelson co-stars as the brash and confident dancer who falls in love with Melinda.

Doris Day as usual gives her all in the lead role. Gladys George was a perfect casting choice for Melinda's washed-up alcoholic mother and Florence Bates is fun in one of her trademark 'society matron' roles. Billy DeWolfe, S.Z. Sakall and Gene Nelson would go on to co-star with Doris Day again in the successful TEA FOR TWO (both movies were made and released in the same year and were big box office drawcards for Warners).

A top Hollywood musical.
