Stage-and-night club star Jeannie Laird (June Haver) buys her first home, and everyone who is anyone comes to her first garden party only to be blinded by smoke from next door. Jeannie charges next door to bawl out her new neighbor and meets comic-strip artist Bill Carter (Dan Dailey). Bill has devoted himself to his strip, and raising his ten-year-old son Joe (Billy Gray) since the death of his wife. Joe bases his strip on the everyday happenings of he and his son and is proud of keeping it scrupulously honest. When Jeannie and Bill fall in love, young Joe is hurt, especially when Bill starts using a lot of the father-son time to be with Jeannie. Bill cancels a father-son trip to Canada, and Joe decides to write a letter to Bill's syndicate pointing out that the current plot line of the script being set in Canada isn't honest, since they didn't go.Written by

A 'specialty' number was filmed for 'The Girl Next Door' featuring African-American early-1950's nightclub headliner Joyce Bryant, backed by legendary bandleader Benny Carter. Although publicity photos of the pair from the set were released to the black press, the scene was deleted from the final release. See more »
some entertaining song and dance numbers,but virtually no story
this is pure musical,with virtually no story,but it's actually pretty fun.there are some pretty entertaining songs and dance numbers.some of the songs,though,i felt were a bit overdone.if you're not in to musicals,you might want to skip this one.if you're a musical fan,you might like it.the characters are all very likable,and the movie is all ages appropriate.there's nothing offensive at all.it moves along at a good pace.you might feel satisfied while watching.the only thing is,i don't feel it was that memorable.after it's over you'll probably forget about it pretty quickly.but it is entertaining while watching,so i'll give The Girl Next Door a 6/10
