Everybody Does It Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A remake of [[Feature~V117000~Wife, Husband and Friend~wifehusbandandfriend]] (1938), Everybody Does It is a frantic satire of the opera world. Businessman [[Performer~P19880~Paul Douglas~pauldouglas]] is forced to suffer in silence when his wife ([[Performer~P32955~Celeste Holm~celesteholm]]) decides to become an opera star. Compelled to bankroll a concert for his missus, [[Performer~P19880~Douglas~pauldouglas]] meets genuine opera diva [[Performer~P17046~Linda Darnell~lindadarnell]] at the concert. While passing the time, [[Performer~P17046~Darnell~lindadarnell]] discovers that [[Performer~P19880~Douglas~pauldouglas]] in fact has a magnificent singing voice. Partly because he is flattered by [[Performer~P17046~Darnell~lindadarnell]]'s attentions, and partly to show up his wife, [[Performer~P19880~Douglas~pauldouglas]] embarks on his own operatic career. But on the night of his debut, [[Performer~P19880~Douglas~pauldouglas]] suffers a severe attack of stage fright, gets "doped up" on medicine in order to survive the performance, and hilariously humiliates himself in front of everyone. [[Performer~P17046~Darnell~lindadarnell]] l angrily stalks out of the scene, and the sadder-but-wiser [[Performer~P19880~Douglas~pauldouglas]] and [[Performer~P32955~Celeste Holm~celesteholm]] return to each other's arms. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
