Top Banana


Musical comedy100 Mins1954

Tyrannical TV star Jerry Biffle (Phil Silvers) wants to boost the sagging ratings for his comedy series. What better way to do that than by casting a couple of hot young bodies -- Sally Peters (Judy Lynn) and Cliff Lane (Danny Scholl) -- as eye candy for the viewing public? The plan gets complicated when Jerry falls for Sally, who really loves Cliff. Adapted from the hit Broadway musical, "Top Banana" is notable for filming the actual stage production on the original sets.
