On a layover in Hawaii two conniving Navy seamen borrow money to lay down bets that their ship will win the upcoming gunnery practice trophy, having found out that the current gunnery champ has just transferred aboard their ship. What they haven't learned, however, is that the marksman's enlistment is up before the contest is supposed to take place. Written by

There have only been three ships named for the city Cleveland. The first was cruiser C-19 commissioned in 1903 and scrapped in 1930. Long before the time, this film is set in. The second was CL-55, a light cruiser commissioned in 1942 which was after the time this film is set in. And the third was LPD-7 and amphibious transport dock commissioned in 1967. So there was no U.S.S. Cleveland with the U.S. Navy during the time represented in this film. See more »
Very good musical comedy. The two Jacks, Rita and Jackie make the movie.
I was working in The Imperial Theatre in Charlotte,NC in 1941 when this movie was shown. It, along with The Fleets In, is the reason I joined the Navy and served 33 years. Jackie Gleason, even though he had few lines, did a good job and exibited what would become his trade mark in the future.
