While waiting in New York City to ship out to Europe, a sailor stops by a serviceman's canteen and meets a USO hostess. They immediately fall for each other and get married that night. However, when the sailor is notified that he has been reclassified as 4-F (unfit for service) by the Navy and then discharged, he and his new wife realize that, having to set up house before they expected to, they actually know very little about each other. Complications ensue. Written by
When John Hill is trying to open the davenport that is supposed to fold out into a bed, it keeps closing on him, to comic effect. When he tries to spread a sheet over the mattress, the wire extending from the back of the davenport to the front edge that keeps pulling it closed is visible. See more »
The Title Characters Show Why Baby-boomers Often Have Miserable Parents
This is a very cogent argument for living together a while before marriage!
Robert Walker, very appealing (and extremely skinny looking when we see him chest-up in the bath tub) and June Alyson marry on impulse when he is -- well, he's the sailor and she becomes the wife.
Then he isn't a sailor anymore and they have to live in a large apartment in Greenwich Village, where they learn they have nothing in common and really don't like each other.
She wears her bunny rabbit "jammies" the night of their honeymoon; and really: What man wouldn't be frustrated at that?
The super of the building is Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, whom some tenants seem to call Eddie and some call Harry.
The generally great villain and excellent actress Audrey Totter is wasted in a third-billed role as a Romanian who speaks with an accent sometimes Russian, mostly French,m and, though she wears hats most of the time, appears to be wearing a black wig.
It isn't without charm. But it's ill conceived.
