There's No Business Like Show Business is a 1954 20th Century-Fox musical-comedy-drama, directed by Walter Lang. The title is borrowed from the famous song in the stage musical (and MGM film) Annie Get Your Gun. The screenplay was written by Phoebe Ephron and Henry Ephron, based on a story by Lamar Trotti; and the movie was Fox's first musical in CinemaScope and DeLuxe Color. 
 
With a negative reputation for being a box office bomb, the film stars an ensemble cast, including Ethel Merman, Dan Dailey, Donald O'Connor, Mitzi Gaynor, Marilyn Monroe, Richard Eastham, and Johnnie Ray.
