Tagline: In every life there comes a time when that dream you dream becomes that thing you do.
Trivia: The scene where The Wonders perform live on The Hollywood Television Showcase was filmed at the Bob Barker Studio (Studio 33) at CBS Television City in Hollywood, California where the long-running hit game show "The Price Is Right" (1956) is taped.
