| A story of a dog and his man
Len Carmody "Van Johnson" is a wannabe stage actor telling jokes that not are funny, dancing and singing. Kelly is a stage show dog that is always being "hit" by his so-called master. Carmody befriends the dog not knowing that Kelly has decided to adopt him as his master. Kelly and Carmody develop routines for the shows which always features Kelly dancing when his paws are on Carmody's shoulders. A producer of early talking hollywood movies decides that Kelly would be a hit but that they must also bring along Carmody because Kelly will not work without him. Carmody's pride leads him to believe that he is the star of the movies and not a dog. Carmody has a showdown with Kelly.

In this film, Kelly also is the star but Van Johnson is wonderful as the overbearing egotist. The final scenes as Carmody realizes just how much Kelly loves him and he the dog is very touching. If you love dogs then you will always remember this gem.
