Howard Young is a coast guardsman who has been on shore duty for three years despite his efforts to be sent into action. His nearest approach to sea duty was on a harbor-moored life raft for 21 days as part of an experiment with a new type of vitamin gum for the government. He meets Christine Bradley, a SPAR, sent to take over his communications job and, by things he leaves unsaid, she thinks his life-raft experience was the result of a ship-wreck at sea. Written by

He's cute! He's adorable! He's so skinny! He's BLONDE! I can never express how much I love this man. He's my comic idol and patron saint, and he has cheered me in the darkest times. It's a pleasure to see genuine talent showcased like this. You can see the genius in bloom here, but who knew he'd be The King? Alfred Drake and Janet Blair are terrific and the movie is very cute, even if a few numbers could easily have been cut and replaced with MORE SID. His Airplane Number alone is worth the viewing and it breaks my heart that he didn't make more films worthy of his unbridled talent and energy. You almost can't believe that this Sid is the same guy who would later be the German General and The Professor. He's not a great singer, especially next to Alfred Drake, who also deserved more movie roles worthy of him, but he can carry these numbers off brilliantly and gets the audience's love from the get go. Thank you, Sid!
