Ellen Hallit is in love with her playboy boss, Douglas Morrison, but is too timid to do anything about it. To help her, her roommate Chris decides to step in, and devises a plan. Chris follows Morrison on his trip to Sun Valley, Idaho and plays the overattentive female, hoping that he will send for Ellen (who often played his "fiancée" when he had a female he couldn't discourage otherwise.) Complications arise when Chris catches the eye of band leader Dick Layne, and finds herself caught in a triangle between the two men. Written by
Esther Williams musicals have always made me squirm a bit, but here she's thankfully limited to just a couple of waterlogged numbers and spends most of her time romantically juggling John Lund and Van Johnson. This picture is as glossy and slight on story as they come, but it's an entertaining enough time waster and features the odd fun cameo by MGM stars assigned to the production to keep things lively, most notably Red Skelton and Eleanor Powell. Mel Torme and Amanda Blake are also visible in small roles. A few nice winter shots of Sun Valley and a couple of decent tunes but be warned - the only thing even remotely deep about this picture is the swimming pool.
