An original pressbook or Lenny Bruce's second or, just possibly, third screenwriting credit, released the same year as his thematically polar-opposite riff on burlesque, DREAM FOLLIES. Bruce co-wrote this script with Jack Henley, basing it on a story by G. W. George and G. F. Slavin. Oscar Rudolph directed the family-oriented science fiction comedy, which starred Charles Coburn, Spring Byington, Anne Francis and John Agar. Bruce's first credit, DANCE HALL RACKET, appeared in early 1953.Includes a synopsis, cast-list, all the available publicity paper, and some publicity suggestions. Bruce is credited in the text and on the majority of the reproduced posters, window cards, advert copy, etc.
