Storyline

Kathie Aumont has just arrived in the big city to work at a defense plant. When the promised accommodation with her friend Sally falls through, Kathie is forced to find somewhere else to live in the city where there is a virtually zero vacancy. She is able to finagle renting the apartment of Johnny Moore, who is just heading off into the marines. What Johnny forgets to tell her before he leaves is that he has given his apartment key to many of his enlisted friends for them to be able to use the apartment whenever they are in town. As such, Kathie never knows who she's going to find in the apartment. Complications ensue when Kathie falls for two of them, and they with her. One of them is Mike O'Brien, a navy sailor and notorious womanizer. The other is Johnny himself, Kathie and he who had a moment before he left and who comes home unexpectedly on a twenty-four hour pass. It gets even more complicated when one of the apartment keys gets into the wrong hands. All these complications are... Written by Huggo

A series of meet-cutes soon becoming a series of romantic misunderstandings...
21 May 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Fairly sharp script by Philip Yordan and John Kafka, from Alice Reeve's magazine story, about a working gal in Washington, DC who, because of the housing shortage created by returning WWII soldiers, accepts an apartment from a Marine on deployment. Unfortunately, he has also given copies of the key to all his buddies on shore leave, though our attractive heroine--Simone Simon, who keeps singing "Frère Jacques" to tell us she's a Frenchie--doesn't seem to mind the unwarranted drop-ins. For some odd reason, a comical Beelzebub (with what sounds like the uncredited voice of Mel Blanc) is injected into this merry mix-up of the sexes, as well as bratty twin boys who keep barging in unannounced to use Simon's bathroom! It all begins well enough before losing steam in the second-half, turning into a screwball romp with pie-in-the-face humor and the type of wrap-up in Night Court which seldom works. Noteworthy for an early appearance by Robert Mitchum (who has a funny bit flipping Simon onto a bed), but the laughs are spread pretty thin. *1/2 from ****
