Storyline

The oddly-assorted Hart cousins: revue singer Blossom, con man Harry, and machinist Chiquita (who gets radio through her teeth!), inherit southern plantation Magnolia Manor, which alas proves to be a "termite trap" and tax liability. Fortunately, Sgt. Rocky Fulton from a nearby army camp appears with a plan to convert the place to a hotel for army wives; but to pay bills until then, they decide to put on a show. Of course, romantic and military complications intervene... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Too many irritants
5 December 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Among them Carmen Miranda and Phil Silvers, for me to enjoy the movie. Individually I would not have minded but both in one movie was too much. Michael O'Shea and Vivian Blaine were very good and the musical and dancing numbers were terrific. Some of the unintentionally cornball stuff and poor script made the audience burst out laughing far too often in all the wrong places. I gave it a 5 out of 10. A young Perry Como with energy was a delight to see and hear.
