The Seven Little Foys is a 1955 film starring Bob Hope as Eddie Foy. James Cagney reprises his role as George M. Cohan for an energetic tabletop dance showdown sequence. In addition to the famous film, the story of Eddie Foy, Sr. and the Seven Little Foys also inspired a TV version in 1964 and a stage musical version, which premiered in 2007.
Vaudeville entertainer Eddie Foy, who has vowed to forever keep his act a solo, falls in love with and marries Italian ballerina Madeleine. While they continue to tour the circuit, they begin a family and before long have seven little Foys to clutter the wings. After the tragedy of the Iroquois Theater Fire threatened to stall Eddie's career, he comes to realize that his little terrors are worth their weight in gold.
The second eldest Foy, Charley, narrates periodically throughout the film.
