Two singers (Frankie Laine, Billy Daniels) step in to help an aspiring actress (Charlotte Austin) whose grandmother opposes her bid to launch a show-business career.
Upon its re-release, this 1952 film was retitled "Castle in the Air", leading to much confusion on the part of television exhibitors who mistook this film for a British ghost fantasy, also released in 1952, whose ORIGINAL and only title was "Castle in the Air". Often TV stations who were actually showing "Rainbow Round My Shoulder" under its re-release title would think that they were showing the British fantasy film. The confusion persists to this day, as evidenced by Turner Classic Movies' recent showing of the Frankie Laine musical after announcing that the British fantasy film would be shown.
