Tyrone Power stars in this engaging, romantic extravaganza featuring music by Irving Berlin. When an early 1900s San Francisco aristocrat changes his name to Alexander, it gives him the freedom to introduce the town to a whole new band sound – swing! With this comes success, and a love affair with his lead singer (Alice Faye) in this beloved classic that also features Don Ameche and Ethel Merman.
