About the only thing kept in this film from Preston Sturges original story for “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek” is a girl that gets drunk, gets married, gets pregnant and doesn’t even remember any of it. A major difference is that “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek” was a classic comedy and “Rock-a-Bye Baby” isn’t. This time out, Clayton Poole is a small town TV repairman who is still in love with his former hometown sweetheart, Carla Naples, who is now a famous movie queen. When Carla becomes pregnant due to a hasty marriage in Mexico, which she has forgotten about, the studio tells her a baby will ruin her career so she turns to Clayton, the only person she can trust, and he agrees to care for the baby when it is born. Carla gives birth to triplets and Clayton finds he must get married before he can adopt them. He marries Sandy, Carla’s younger sister who has always loved him. Rock-a-Bye Baby, the 1958 Frank Tashlin family wacky screwball slapstick comedy (loosely based on the Preston Sturges screenplay from “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek”; “Fab-U-Lewis Fun For the Whole Family!”; “Based on a story by Preston Sturges”) starring Jerry Lewis, Marilyn Maxwell, Reginald Gardiner, Salvatore Baccaloni (billed simply as “Baccaloni”), Connie Stevens, George Sanders, Hans Conried, Ida Moore, Gary Lewis, Judy Franklin, Isobel Elsom, and Alex Geary.
