Storyline

Soldier Johnny Grey is engaged to marry singer Mapy Cortes, but his plans go awry when he learns that he is the heir to $100,000 from his great-grandfather -- a bequest that comes with a catch: before claiming the money, Johnny must marry a descendant of his great-grandfather's Civil War enemy, General Havelock-Allen. Not wanting to disrupt his planned marriage to Mapy, Johnny must figure out how to concoct a temporary marriage-of-convenience with the descendant -- who turns out to be the beautiful Terry Havelock-Allen.

Trivia

Russell Hoyt, Frank Martinelli and Richard Martin are listed in studio records/casting call lists playing uncredited "Members of Financial Trio," and some references picked up that credit. However, no financial discussions takes place in the movie, other than those with the main characters. Since Richard Martin was seen in the film as a soldier and has virtually no lines, it can be assumed the other two are soldiers also and that the trio's participation in the plot was cut from the film.

See Lucy in her glamour days as a young starlet, in this cheesy but fun WWII-era musical comedy.
23 March 2001 | by (Louisiana USA) – See all my reviews

"Seven Days' Leave" is a WWII-era musical comedy about a young Army soldier [Mature] who is due a large inheritance. The problem is, he must marry a certain girl [Ball] whom he does not love, in order to collect.

If one is a Lucy fan, this movie is a great watch. Lucy is actually drop-dead gorgeous in this flick, more so than she had ever been in her entire career, in my opinion.

Also, Harold 'The Great Gildersleeve' Peary adds to the fun, along with Marcy McGuire as the younger sister to Lucy's character.

Unfortunately, this film as a whole is quite mediocre. And, Victor Mature sings twice. FFWD required.

All in all, one watch of this movie is definitely worth it. The video is even worth owning if you like Lucy.
