"Dakota," a young soldier on a pass in New York City, visits the famed Stage Door Canteen, where famous stars of the theatre and films appear and host a recreational center for servicemen during the war. Dakota meets a pretty young hostess, Eileen, and they enjoy the many entertainers and a growing romance. Written by

Producer Sol Lesser
paid the Stage Door Canteen $50,000 for the use of its name; they and Allied Charities received the net profits from the film. Because it was too difficult to film at the actual Stage Door Canteen on 44th Street in New York City, it was duplicated at both filming locations (Fox News NY Studios and RKO-Pathé Studios, Culver City).
