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? Written by

Programmers don't come any more slender than this quickie little musical. Still, the minor production is not without its appeal a gorgeous and talented Anne Jeffries, a spunky bunch of underused kids, and the pug-nosed cutie Marcy McGuire. Now, I have no problem with leading men in obnoxious roles as long as they have one key qualitycharm, at some redeeming level. And that's the trouble with Haley as obnoxious reporter Steve. He has no charm at any level. As a result, his Steve fails to engage except in a negative way that leaves a hole in the movie's middle, a hard problem to get past. Considering how many leading men were away fighting the war, I guess the studios had to make do with what they had. Too bad that it shows here. Anyway, the movie does convey some of America's spirit at WWII's end and the buoyant period that would follow, and may be of interest for that reason.
