Lady Luck is in the building. Ever since rancher Chuck Rodman (Dan Dailey) grabbed the hand of a passing ballerina, he can't lose. Hold her hand at the roulette table…winner! At the slots…jackpot! Take the danseuse to the homestead to meet mama…a dry oil wellcomes in! Think maybe the duo should hold hands at the altar? Lovely Cyd Charisse is en pointe for this musical showpiece set in part in the mid-century chic of the Sands Hotel and peppered with credited and uncredited star turns from Old Blue Eyes, Lena Horne, Debbie Reynolds, Frankie Laine, Peter Lorre – the list goes on. Capping the fun: Charisse's bebop ballet Frankie & Johnny, voiced by Sammy Davis, Jr. Hit me, daddy-o!
