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?

The music is worth the trip

A strangely fluffy movie which ranks with the beach boy movies of later years. While it is true that not much happens on a transoceanic voyage, even less happens in this film. It is mildly humorous, but so weak a plot in the dramatically tense times following World War Two defies logic. Perhaps it is a reflection of the release of tension felt at war's end or perhaps it reflects a desire to get things back to normal. Yet, normalcy in pre-war terms no longer seemed likely. Neither can characterization carry this film very far since none seem very convincing. However, this film does have one extreme strong point--the music, particularly as sung by Anne Jeffreys who plays the role of Kay Lawrence. As a jazz vocalist, Jeffreys is really very good, but her forte is her rendering of "The Lord's Prayer," in a truly powerful style. The movie is worth seeing if only to hear Jefferys and the other vocalist sing.
