Storyline

Conceited war correspondent Steve Kimball, desperate to get back to the USA from occupied Paris, reluctantly agrees to chaperone a troupe of stranded, teenaged hepcat entertainers. Plus redheaded Bridget, not a real member of the group...just stranded (and the 16th person on 15 tickets). But Steve has a use for her: to sneak his stories past censorship in "love code." Their shipboard dormitory is also shared by adult glamour girl Kay. Can the kids enlist Kay to keep Steve out of their hair? Can all sorts of complications be far behind?

take home "Sing Your Way Home."
1 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously, this movie doesn't have snob appeal, and most of those criticizing this movie seemed to delight in pointing out that it was pointless.

This one-set film (aboard ship) was, admittedly fluffy, but it was also thoroughly enjoyable. The plus for me was Marcy McGuire who was never given much of a chance in spite of her wide-eyed cuteness and overall appeal.

The plot was nutty, but fascinating. Correspondent Jack Haley sent his news stories back to his editor by using code messages containing love words. Marcy is the 'sendee' and has a crush on Haley who, eventually, has a crush on Anne Jeffreys, that beautiful blonde scene stealer.

The dialogue and situations were fun, the songs excellent, particularly Miss Jeffries singing "The Lord's Prayer" during shipboard Sunday services. Check the proper solemn expressions of those at the service.

Columbia and RKO were major contributors to the grade-B musical genre, and most always offered good music and good fun.

We had several theaters in our neighborhood and one, the 43rd Street Theater concentrated on these films plus the Chan, Tracy (Dick, not Spencer), Blondie, etc. flicks. They double-featured them to, more often than not, nearly empty weekday afternoon houses. I was there and having a good time.

You will, too. Ignore the pomposity of most of the critics and go for the good time.
