Call Me Mister

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1950. Final Script for the 1951 film, "Call Me Mister," directed by Lloyd Bacon, written for the screen by Albert E. Lewin and Burt Styler, and starring Betty Grable, Dan Dailey, Danny Thomas, and Richard Boone. With choreography by Busby Berkeley and songs by Frances Ash, Earl K. Brent, Sammy Fain, and Mack Gordon.

"Call Me Mister" was based on a long-running Broadway revue with more than a little off-color humor. Fox grafted a storyline onto the revue, cleaned up the dialogue, and a wartime musical was born, wherein Grable, a singer touring USO bases, runs into her old husband Dailey.
