Quick Overview

Starring Kay Dowd, Robert Duke, David Street, Barbara Perry, Charles

Kemper

Directed by Leslie Goodwins



Print: black/white

Runtime: 70 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



High up in Actors' Heaven---where those actors who have taken their final

curtain on earth still maintain a lively interest in theatrical activity---there

is a bell which has been named Minnie. When a struggling young actor on

Broadway has sufficient faith in himself---if he believes strongly enough

in his ability and talent---then Minnie rings out clearly, signaling that the

time is right for an angel to leave Actors' Heaven and go down to earth to

help a worthy, but-as-yet-successful actor or actress. When versatile,

young Karen James refuses to be discouraged by her rejection by

producer Rodney Lloyd, Minnie rings out loudly and clearly. Phineas

Aloysius Higby, who was a magician before he was called to Actor's

Heaven, begs to be allowed to go earthward to help Karen and is finally

assigned the job. Phineas rents a room in the theatrical boarding house

run by Madam Della, an ex-prima donna who has never gotten over it.

Karen also lives there, as well as David Randall, a young artist. David

conceals his love for Karen because he believes she loves Paul Blake,

an advertising writer who pretends, for Karen's sake, that he has

playwriting ambitions. Phineas befriends Karen and David and

accompanies them to another audition for Rodney Lloyd, who rejects

Karen again but is entranced by Phineas' magic and tries to sign him up.

Phineas consults Sir Henry Bushnell, head man of Actors' Heaven, and

secures his permission to pretend to be a producer in order to

encourage Karen. Phineas then promises to produce a show to be written

by Paul (who can't write)and to star Karen and her friends, Tiny , Rosie,

Susie , Kay , Barbara, and others, all theatrically ambitious, talented kids

now working in a department store. David dreams up several production

numbers, and even Madam Della's maid, Theresa, who also sings in a

night club, and her accompanist and agent, Cliff , join in with a hot

number of their own. But complications arise and, before long, Phineas

has created many problems and soon has Minnie the Bell ringing

constantly and boisterously.
