Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones star in this musical fantasy about the miraculous powers of love. Filmed on location with beautiful seaside settings as a backdrop and a thrilling score for accompaniment, their romance unfolds. Gordon MacRae is Billy, a carnival worker who falls in love with Shirley Jones. Before the birth of their daughter, Billy is killed. Now years later, he returns to earth for one day to teach his daughter one very important lesson. A poetic and lyrical Rodgers and Hammerstein musical based on Ferenc Molnar’s play “Liliom”.
