5' 2" Mickey Rooney dances with 5' 8" Marilyn Hanold, perhaps an intentional reprise of Rooney's scene in the 1946 picture, "Love Laughs at Andy Hardy," in which he dances with 6' 2"" Dorothy Ford. See more »
Typical fifties services comedy in which the guys try and get one or more over on the brass. This one has Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovaks, and in particular, a mad-cap, jive-talking high-energy Mickey Rooney each given roles that fit them to a T and its a lot of laughs. Kovaks' early death was a great loss to cinema. Early Dick York and later Kathryn Grant before she married Bing Crosby, She was a wide-eyed cutie and I missed her.
