Bob Crosby, bandleader brother of Bing, heads the cast of Columbia's Meet Miss Bobby Socks. The thin-as-cheesecloth plot concerns WW2 veteran Don Collins (Crosby), who becomes the idols of teenaged girls everywhere when he pursues a singing career. Obviously intended as a takeoff of the "Sinatra craze", the film's comedy is rather dated, especially the story angle wherein Collins' fans, rather than cagey promoters, find a series of jobs for their idol. It's hard to tell who the titular "Miss Bobby Socks" is since the film is virtually wall-to-wall girls; apparently, the title refers to Susan Tyler (Louise Erickson), kid sister of nominal heroine Helen Tyler (Lynn Merrick). Guest stars include Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five and the Kim Loo Sisters, though they're seen but briefly in the course of events.
