This is one of a handful of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer productions of the 1950-1951 period whose original copyrights were never renewed and are now apparently in Public Domain; for this reason this title is now offered, often in very inferior copies, at bargain prices, by numerous VHS and DVD distributors who do not normally handle copyrighted or Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer material.

Three Guys Named Mike is an unapologetic romantic comedy with a strong twist of chick-flick, but turns out to be way more than that in the final act.
After fulfilling her childhood dream and becoming a stewardess the sprightly Marcy encounters three men, the Mikes, as she takes to the skies. Each comes to represent different possible futures not so much for what they are but for what Marcy herself is at her core. When all three come together at once her decision-making will doubtless determine her future. A false step here and she will be trapped in the "wrong life." But how to decide? Well, fortunately with a good bit of humor! While Marcy's adventures start out pretty slow they pick up pace in the second reel, and when the girls get an apartment in Hollywood the dialog starts to explode with humor and wonderful comedic situations. We start to see not only the original sprightly nature but the wits and building character of this young woman, coming to the rare case of a film that leverages our love for the characters, our concern for what they do, and our sheer entertainment with great lines all sweeping into an ending that we may have--or may not have--guessed.
