This is a funny situation comedy with some outstanding dance numbers by Betty Grable. Richard Sale is the writer-director of this musical, which is adapted from an earlier hit at 20th Century Fox. This one is in Technicolor and it has a lot of energy, but nothing too crazy or chaotic. Yes, that means Carmen Miranda is not featured. But what it does feature are some entertaining song-and-dance routines, and some very dependable acting from the two male leads: Macdonald Carey and Eddie Albert. I have always liked Macdonald Carey and consider him a most underrated performer. He has a knack for delivering lines in a way that makes a man both a wolf in sheep's clothing and a sheep in wolf's clothing. Carey also gets the chance to sing to Grable during a scene on a boat. The cast includes Rory Calhoun in one of his first roles at the studio.
