Well, it sure has a lot of energy!
19 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Eddie Bracken plays J. Newport Bates, one of the richest men in the world. The problem is that women adore him...because he's rich. And, after catching his fiancé in the arms of another man, he's determined to do something radical. No...not give away his money. Instead, he's planning on entering the Navy under an assumed name and blend in with all the 'normal' folks. Then, if a woman falls for him, she loves him for who he is...not what he's worth. Well, his lawyers hate the idea but cannot dissuade him. So instead they get him to accept a new friend...who will enlist with him and look out for him. However, Phil (Sonny Tufts) turns out to be only so-so at the job and cannot stop him from meeting and falling in love with Teddy (Veronica Lake)...a money-grubber is there ever was one! She has found out that Bates is the man who loves her and looks forward to a life of luxury. What's to come of all this?

The film has energy. While it's entertaining, it seems very high speed at times AND tosses in a bunch of musical numbers as well! This means that although one or two things might fall a bit flat, it doesn't matter because the film doesn't give you much chance to notice the lulls! Not brilliant in any way but worth seeing.

By the way, in the night club look carefully, as tiny parts are played by Yvonne De Carlo (a hatcheck girl) and Noel Neill (from the "Adventures of Superman" and she plays a new cigarette girl).
