Stars in Your Eyes (1956)

Film details

Synopsis

Entertainers Jimmy Knowles, Sally Blake and David Laws band together to purchase a run-down theatre and put on a show. They accomplish this with money loaned by the ex-wife of Laws, Ann Hart, but without his knowledge. Hart loaned the money as a way of trying to help Laws get back on his feet again after he had started drinking heavily. However, property developers also have their eye on the theatre and hire hecklers to disrupt the first night's performance. Laws decides to sell the theatre, but Knowles, Blake and Hart stage one more performance as a television special without telling Laws what they intend to do. The broadcast is a big hit, Laws decides not to sell the theatre, and he and Hart are reunited.
