SPRINGTIME IN THE ROCKIES 1942 DVD BETTY GRABLE JOHN PAYNE CARMEN MIRANDA
During the thirty-fourth week of their hit Broadway show, dancer Vicky Lane awaits the arrival of her partner, Dan Christy, but as usual, he is late. Vicky thinks that Dan is buying her an engagement ring and is infuriated to discover that he has been on a date with socialite Marilyn Crothers. Fed up with Dan's womanizing and insensitivity, Vicky quits the show and returns to her former dancing partner and beau, Victor Prince, who is still in love with her. Three months pass as Dan sinks into a depression and cannot find a backer for his new show. His agent, the Commissioner, tells him that businessmen Bickel and Brown will back his show, but only if he can get Vicky to return. Dan is pessimistic, for Vicky and Victor are beginning a new engagement with Harry James and His Music Makers at a Lake Louise resort in the Canadian Rockies. The Commissioner tells Dan to romance Vicky so that she will come back, and not tell her about Bickel and Brown until she arrives in New York. He then asks bartender McTavish to get the drunken Dan on the next plane to Lake Louise. When Dan awakens sometime later, he finds himself at the Canadian resort and learns that he has hired McTavish as his valet and Rosita Murphy, who was working in a Detroit souvenir shop, as his secretary. He then confronts Vicky, who happily shows off the engagement ring given to her by Victor. Dan is discouraged but hits upon the scheme of making Vicky jealous by romancing Rosita.
