A beautiful songstress is rejected out of an audition because she is not considered to be 'cultured' enough to make it on the Broadway stage. Doll Face Carroll is the woman rejected and Mike Hannegan, the man that is in love with her, wants to show the theater world she is worth the attention. For that, Mike contacts a ghost writer that will prepare the right resume for the gorgeous woman he loves. Nothing prepared Hannegan for the results. A grateful Doll Face will make everything possible to give him the recognition he deserves.

This 20th Century Fox feature of 1946 gives us a dose of nostalgia. Based on a Gypsy Rose Lee play, and directed by Lewis Seiler, the film is mildly amusing. The musical numbers are well executed, especially the hit song, "Somebody's Walking in my Dream". All the songs were composed by the team of Harold Adamson and Jimmy McHugh.

Vivian Blaine appears in the title role. Dennis O'Keefe is Mike Hannegan. In addition we see the irrepressible Carmen Miranda doing "Chico Chico" with a big production number. Perry Como and Martha Stewart are in hand to do some songs. Stephen Dunne has a good opportunity.

"Doll Face" although not a great film, has some enjoyable songs and is entertaining.
