Meet Me After the Show is a 1951 musical film starring Betty Grable and released through 20th Century Fox. The film was one of Grable's last musical films for Fox during her box office reign of the past decade.
Delilah Lee is groomed by her husband Jeff Ames for his new Broadway show. Delilah becomes such a success to a point where she feels that Jeff thinks of her more as an asset than a wife. When the show's backer Gloria Carstairs begins coming on to Jeff, Delilah leaves him, but regrets it later on and tries to win him back. She devises a scheme involving amnesia to lure Jeff back to her.

Betty Grable had been reigning the box office throughout the 1940s. Her films always made big money for 20th Century Fox and they rewarded her by increasing her salary over the years to a point where she was making more money than Darryl F. Zanuck. By the end of the decade she was making $300,000 a year which made her the highest paid person in Hollywood and one of the highest paid people in America. Meet Me After the Show was a box office hit when released, especially due to the successes of her two films the previous year; Wabash Avenue and My Blue Heaven.
