In this musical comedy, a popular singer and his band find themselves stuck in the Canary Islands. While there a neurotic filmmaker brings his cast and crew to make a film. The singer ends up falling for the leading lady and decides to make a musical version of the film on the sly using the other director's equipment. Both pictures are lousy until the two filmmakers team up and combine them. A smash hit is born. Songs include: "Wonderful Life," "A Girl in Every Port," "Home," "A Little Imagination," "On the Beach," "In the Stars," "We Love a Movie," "Do You Remember," "What I Gotta Do," "All Kinds of People," "A Matter of Moments," "Youth and Experience" (performed by Richard and the Shadows), "Theme from Young Lovers," and "Walkin"' (performed by the Shadows).
