I agree with the other reviewer that this is one of the best in screwball comedies and deserves more recognition than it has gotten in the past. I came across it quite by accident when purchasing a 50 movie video collection. There were some Stooges (not too fond of), East Side Kids (ok but not attractive enough), and a few other good and unusual movies. THIS one stood out as probably one of the best in the collection for its zany twists and turns and fun all around. As another viewer said, it has an unique twist to the "returning soldier" story. I would think it would fit best under the Preston Sturges movies for the amazing wild and funny antics, Rudy Vallee with the ever persistent glasses that Sturges first placed on his nose in Palm Beach Story, and the heart that demonstrates that even the crazies of men with the craziest ideas has a definite purpose in mind and not so crazy after all.
Rudy Vallee and Hillary Brooke as Peter and Shirley Pedigrew nearly steal the show with their wacky relationship, but the sweet romance that builds from the very beginning when Jimmy sees the Admiral is full of innocence and charm.
This is one of those movies that you wish had even more than what has been presented to you because you don't want it to stop. You want more.
This is a perfect example that there are still hidden gems out there in the Golden Age of Hollywood that are still undiscovered.
