Rock A Bye Baby

-- Synopsis: A Movie star Carla Naples (Marilyn Maxwell), has triplets, but does not want her beloved public to find out. She hired a bumbling TV repairman / ex-boyfriend Clayton Poole (Jerry Lewis) as a babysitter and mother in training, who is also in love with her. Connie Stevens plays Sandy, the perfect girl next door who is head over heels for Jerry and also sister to Carla. Lewis must get married to adopt the triplets so he marries Sandy who now has given birth to quintuplets. Will it all get uncovered by the nosey busy-bodies and from the suspicions of their father Gigi (Salvatore Baccaloni ?). This is a hilarious family movie with a sweet story that's great for all ages.

* There is quite a bit of Song and dance thru-out this film and even some Jitterbug. This film is basically a funnier remake of Miracle at Morgans Creek.
