A major point in the film is that Johnny Cabot (Bing Crosby) is colorblind. This was true in real life. "He will think something is a beautiful blue," his wife once explained, "and it will turn out to be a bilious green." His loud clothing was the butt of many jokes, especially by Bob Hope. See more »
When Betty Hutton begins to write a letter, she is shown in medium shot and she is obviously just scribbling on the paper, but after the cut to an over-the-shoulder shot, the writing does not match and it is neat and legible. See more »
Betty Hutton plays twins, Susan and Rosemary, who both sign up to join the WAVES. Singer Johnny (Bing Crosby) also joins the navy and is posted alongside his friend Windy (Sonny Tufts). The foursome start dating and put on a show........what a surprise!.....
It's wartime morale-boosting blurge and it's all just a bit boring. Betty Hutton plays one twin - Rosemary - as demure with dark hair and she is her usual boisterous, shouty self for the other twin - Susan. Sonny Tufts is pretty dreadful and Bing Crosby, for all his transparent enthusiasm to join the forces, really doesn't belong in the navy. The standout part of the film is the "Accentuate The Positive" number which is done in black-face. As for the story, just when you hope it's going to end, it seems to continue with yet another misunderstanding. The film is overcomplicated with few highlights. Oh yeah, Betty Hutton looks like a transvestite in a dark wig - she's much better as a blonde.
