After four years stationed in London, Danny Miller (Frank Sinatra) came home to Flatbush with a service buddy–stuffy noble Jamie Shellgrove (Peter Lawford)–in tow, both with eyes on advancing their musical careers. The friendship would be tested as they each found themselves attracted to teacher and aspiring vocalist Anne Fielding (Kathryn Grayson). Engaging M-G-M charmer also stars Jimmy Durante, Gloria Grahame, Billy Roy; songs include “Time After Time,” “Brooklyn Bridge.”
In the 19th century, meek, Boston-bred Ricardo (Frank Sinatra) returned to his native California, expecting to run his late father’s inn. His dad’s cronies, though, want him to assume the old man’s true legacy–the identity of a notorious and romantic robber. Ricardo’s comical attempts at outlaw life do get him the notice of the governor’s beautiful daughter (Kathryn Grayson). Fun musical adventure co-stars Ricardo Montalban, Ann Miller, Cyd Charisse; score includes “Love Is Where You Find It,” “Señorita.”

Songs include “It’s a Most Important Affair,” “The Music Stopped,” “Lovely Way to Spend an Evening,” and more.
