Call Me Mister is a 1951 musical film released by Twentieth Century-Fox. The feature was directed by Lloyd Bacon and re-written from the Broadway play version by Albert E. Lewin and Burt Styler.

Call Me Mister was filmed in Technicolor, and starred Betty Grable and Dan Dailey and co-starred Danny Thomas with supporting players Dale Robertson, Benvay Venuta, and Richard Boone.

Background[edit]

The film was a film version of the Broadway version of Call Me Mister, but was also changed to be a remake of Betty Grable's 1941 film A Yank in the RAF. It was one of Grable's final "successful" films as her box-office power was beginning to diminish. This was also Grable's final film with Dan Dailey, with whom she co-starred in several of her previous films. Call Me Mister was a "moderate success" at the box-office.
