IMDb Wikipedia

A Broadway producer comes up with a gimmick to help promote his new show: a millionaire from Oklahoma buys out the house for the entire first week's run because he is in love with leading lady Alice Faye. A waiter stands in for the millionaire, but the impersonation soon gets out of hand and they must come up with money for the production. Familiar plot device is interspersed with elaborate dance numbers and comic relief from Andy Devine, who performs the 13x7=28 routine that Abbott and Costello made famous a few years later.
