There's No Business Like Show Business is a 1954 musical film directed by Walter Lang. Set in 1919, the film follows Terrance (Dan Dailey) and Molly (Ethel Merman) Donahue and their three children, Katy (Mitzi Gaynor), Steve (Johnnie Ray), and Tim (Donald O'Connor). Terry and Molly are a husband and wife vaudeville team known as The Donahues who struggle to be successful in their careers and with their family. As the children grow up, they try their hand at being The Five Donahues. Molly continually worries about the way their nomadic lifestyle will affect the children, though, and they go through a number of problems before they decide just to settle down with the children. The Depression affects the family also, and it's 1937 before The Five Donahues are working well. Katy focuses on dancing, Steve loves to sing, and Tim balances them both out. When Tim meets Victoria Hoffman (Marilyn Monroe), things start falling apart for the family once again.moreless
