Nightmare Alley (1947)

I see that I repeated Shutoo's mention of Can You Ever Forgive Me? so I'm adding this Tyrone Power movie before someone beats me to it!

I think the movie you're thinking of is Broadway Melody of 1936, although it's not Broadway producer Robert Taylor who has 'nobody' Eleanor Powell pretending to be a French singing star, but newspaper man Jack Benny.
