Van Johnson, drum-playing manager of a Park Avenue block, finds a wealthy tenant mysteriously dead in his apartment. His discovery leads to romance with the corpse's niece, band-singer June Allyson, en route to which the pair outwit the evil, scheming Angela Lansbury.
Despite a pretty silly, unconvincing plot, this romantic comedy mystery moves along good-naturedly and comes to life with Van and June duetting a couple of lively numbers and Dorothy Dandridge (as herself) singing Taking a Chance on Love.
