an Ann Sheridan must-see
27 September 2007 | by (Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

I cannot disagree with the previous reviewer's assessment that this is not a particularly outstanding movie. It was made during war time about the war effort as opposed to strictly being made for entertainment, however, there are some very positive attributes about it. The aspects of the movie that do not center around Sheridan, Morgan and Carson are a little slow and convenient for a war flick. The aspects of the movie that do center around the three stars, however, are outstanding. Ann Sheridan was one of the most beautiful women ever on screen and she is glowingly gorgeous throughout this movie. Additionally, she was a bright, sharp-witted women who in this movie gets to frequently throw verbal-barbs at her co-stars. This is one of my favorite aspects of movies that she stars in. Also, Morgan and Carson play off each other well and have several good scenes including a hilarious confrontation in a bar. This is better than most movies out there.
