A plan is set into action in order to keep June from informing her cousin, who happens to be the President of the Juvenile Betterment Society. Van must pretend he is the distraught single father of a troubled son, a child he borrows from a local orphanage. Soon he has the support and love of his new illustrator, but when the truth is discovered, problems arise.

June’s character: Guest Star

Lavish production numbers, smart tunes and a constellation of celebrities to deliver them in elegant style - that's Words and Music, the 1948 film starring Mickey Rooney as Lorenz Hart and Tom Drake as Richard Rodgers. Rodgers and Hart's was a prolific partnership that produced a score of Broadway shows and numerous tunes for Hollywood. The fruits of their labor are heralded here, as Perry Como croons "Mountain Greenery," June Allyson teases a crew of knights with "Thou Swell," Lena Horne coos "Where Or When," then picks up the beat for a snappy "The Lady Is A Tramp." All this is capped by Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney in a smartly-choreographed duet of "I Wish I Were In Love Again," and Gene Kelly high-kicking his way through a dazzling "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue," featuring Vera Ellen. Producer Arthur Freed's legendary credits include Singing In The Rain, Gigi and An American In Paris, and his Words and Music is a must for every collector of great screen musicals. Directed by Norman Taurog, musical numbers directed by Robert Alton.
