A veteran burlesque queen yearns for the big time and publishes her autobiography (ghost written by a high society writer) in order to make a splash on Broadway. A racy semi-biographical tale by legendary burlesque queen-turned-actress, Gypsy Rose Lee. Great music and dance numbers with Vivian Blaine and Carmen Miranda. Perry Como sings his hit, "Hubba, Hubba, Hubba". Top talent in a wonderfully entertaining backstage musical as only 20th Century Fox could make!
