The Andrews Sisters are lift operators and are the only reason to watch this film. Their first 2 songs in particular are very good but they can't save the film from the assembled cast who are all terrible. The leading man, song publisher Robert Paige (George) shouts his way through dialogue at breakneck speed and Shemp Howard (Alf) is an embarrassment. The film tries to be funny and fails.

Robert Paige keeps taking showers in his office. Not in a bathroom to the side of his office, but in the actual room. And he never locks the door for this. Shemp Howard likes to come into the office when Paige is taking a shower. He loves doing this. He also loves to annoy Patty Andrews by being very unfunny throughout the film.

Bobby Scheerer who is about 12 years old does some dancing, Buddy Rich does some drumming, and the film ends with a flag-waving tribute to the Navy. In between, there is a story about song-writing and Paige being sued for plagiarism. It's mainly an annoying film, though, saved by the 3 sisters and their singing.
