A Song Is Born is a 1948 musical film that centers on Professor Hobart Frisbee (Danny Kaye). He is writing a musical encyclopedia, along with other music academics. Professor Frisbee meets window washers Buck (Ford Washington Lee) and Bubbles (John William Sublett), who introduce him to jazz music. He also meets Honey Swanson (Virginia Mato), a night club singer who is wanted for questioning by the police because of her gangster boyfriend, Tony Crow (Steve Cochran). Looking for a place to hide out, she invites herself to stay with the professors. While there, she introduces the professor and his friends to the latest in jazz music, with songs including "Flying Home", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", "Redskin Rumba" and "A Song is Born." The professors are not familiar with this genre of music. As Honey gets close to Professor Frisbee, her past comes back to haunt her, leaving her with a decision to make.
