Swingin' on a Rainbow is a 1945 American film directed by William Beaudine and starring Jane Frazee. It includes the final film appearance of Harry Langdon.


At a radio station run by Thomas Marsden, a songwriter, Jimmy Rhodes, skips town without fulfilling a contractual obligation, so amateur songstress Lynn Bird is hired to replace him, Marsden mistakenly believing her to be Rhodes's partner.

Bird composes and writes a few songs, with help from Marsden's assistant, Chester Willoughby, and her success helps save the station.
