Wow---am I really the first person to comment on this film?!
22 July 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This navy comedy concerns the adventures of several men on shore leave--and in particular, Dick Purcell as he woos a bookish librarian in order to win a bet. However, his lying and scheming to get the girl has unintended consequences--he actually does fall for the girl and he gets mixed up with a group of spies! I have never seen this film on television nor have I seen it on video. The way I learned about it was finding a public domain copy on the internet that I was able to copy and show on my DVD player. I've tried this with quite a few films lately and most of them were pretty bad, so I know why they are in the public domain and free to copy. However, this film really isn't bad at all and compared to other military comedies it's actually better than most. That's because although it had a modest budget, it was written very well and had many cute twists and turns you wouldn't normally expect from a B-movie.

An interesting note is that one of the sailors is played by Joe Sawyer who made a name for himself a few years later playing Sgt. Ames in Hal Roach military comedies along with William Tracy. The character he plays in this film is very similar to the one he played for Roach.
