Ann Crawford (Ann Miller) inherits a hotel in a ghost town with a population of 1. She and 3 friends put all their savings into the hotel and are very disappointed when they see it. As it happens, Freddy Martin and his orchestra have set themselves up in the hotel to rehearse for future shows, along with Jimmy Ross (John Hubbard) and Rochester and his girlfriend (Theresa Harris). Together, they pool resources together and turn the hotel into a nightclub. However, on opening night, they have no customers and perform to an empty hall. While gardening, Rochester discovers a gold nugget and so begins a gold rush to the ghost town. This brings in the people to attend the shows. At the end, the club is sold and love is in the air.....

The music numbers are competently performed - the best performance being Ann's first tap dance routine, the second best performance being her other tap routine at the end. I found the film boring and to make matters worse I had to endure Rochester's raspy, shouty voice and Billie's (Jeff Donnell) irritating high pitched screeching. It made the film annoying.

Its a nothing film with one very good tap dance routine by Ann Miller which is the only thing worth seeing in the film. Without it, the film would be clear in the "bad" category.
