Storyline

With a war on and most men being drafted, Howard Oil Supply Company has no salesmen left. So daughter Jean hits the road and does not make one sale. She finally gets one tentative sale with the Black Hills Oil Co., but Earl wants dinner with her. With the shortage of housing due to the war, Jean needs a military husband to get a place to stay in Clayfield, which is next to Camp Clay. She gets Lt. Mallory to act as her husband just to register. Then things go wrong as his commanding officer is there and believes them to be married. It gets worse as Don's mother shows up and then Jean's father.

My favorite classic
22 August 2000 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I'll be the first to admit that this movie will probably never be regarded as one of the Top 10 Classics. However, this movie continues to captivate me.

The plot while predictable, is engaging and the characters are interesting (especially, Ida Lupino). Ida Lupino is a cutie pie in this movie!

I would highly recommend this movie!
