The story of a husband who didn't have time to come home! Daddy couldn't get home, so the kids all trouped down to Broadway and got into the act. The incredible, incomparable story of America's most fabulous family!
James Cagney won an Oscar for playing Broadway producer George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942). He agreed to play Cohan again in this film on condition that he would not be paid for the role. He did the role as a tribute to Eddie Foy, who had generously provided occasional meals for struggling young actors, including Cagney, in 1920s New York. See more »

Hope is lovely as vaudevillian Eddie Foy, but the highlight of the film is the wonderful dance scene with Hope's Foy and James Cagney's George M. Cohan. The film was nominated for Best Screenplay of 1956.
