You’re My Everything is practically a synthesis of all the backstage musicals ever filmed including the songs. The direction doesn’t perceptibly freshen the material [based on a story by George Jessel].

Dan Dailey is presented as a hoofer who meets and marries Anne Baxter when his show is playing the Hub. As an inductee into the chorus she’s an enthusiastic wife, but when he’s screentested, she’s drafted for a love scene opposite him, thereby getting the picture contract and becoming the hotcha sensation of the 1920s.

By this time the young hoofer is a nitery star, but the arrival of talkies ends the wife’s career.

As the hoofer, Dailey is properly brash, and not only manages to read the lines with apparent conviction, but succeeds in being likable throughout.
