Trivia

A sprightly mock-gospel number, the 1945 Oscar-nominated "Ac-Cen-Tchu-Ate the Positive" (music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Johnny Mercer) was represented on the "Billboard" singles chart by a couple of second-place finishers: one 78 via Decca Records by Bing Crosby, teamed with The Andrews Sisters (who did not appear in the picture), plus another 78 on Capitol from singer-songwriter Johnny Mercer, supported by The Pied Pipers (who were not featured in the movie).

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Susan: [With a whiskey flask] I got something here that'll warm us up but quick. Have one?
Johnny Cabot: No, thanks.
Susan: Well, down the hatch as you sailors say.
Johnny Cabot: [Looking at the flask] Hah! That's the stiff that puts waves on your permanent.
Susan: Sure you won't have one?
Johnny Cabot: [Doubtfully] Did you leave any?

A Little Bit of Everything
21 March 2002 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that turned out to be much better than I thought it would. I had been led to believe that it was a light, patriotic movie. Certainly it was patriotic. However the story line was really quite good. Betty Hutton was challenged to play twins and to play two different personalities (one bubbly and scatterbrained, the other far more serious). She pulled it off very well indeed. The movie keeps getting better as Susan (the bubbly one) plots to get Johnny (Bing) for herself while Johnny really wants Rosemary (the serious one). As the plots and the misunderstandings grow there is also a show to put on that is touring the country to get women to enlist in the WAVES. There is good music and there are numerous scenes of light humor. This one qualifies in my book as good fun.
