http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039365/ The rise and rise of the Fabulous Dorsey brothers is charted in this delightful whymsical step down memory lane. Lots of fun watching Hollywood's more than creative version of their careers. one of only about three or four films ("I Dood It", "The Fleet's In") with the great Bob Eberle, a truly class act who never minded that his paperboy spent his tip money on Roy Orbison and Paul Anka records.

Set in the backwoods of Canada.
