Storyline

A girl is desperate to get to Washington D.C. to be with her lonesome brother, a wounded G.I. But train travel is impossible just after the war. She pleads with an exasperated railroad agent for something, anything. He suggests she go to Paramount Pictures and talk to Bing Crosby, who is in charge of a Victory War Bonds show. The government has arranged a special caravan to Washington for the Hollywood stars. Maybe she could get a ride with them. The next morning, she arrives at the studio. She manages to get past the studio guard, who chases her around the lot. She encounters many stars, including Robert Benchley, Barbara Stanwyck and Alan Ladd. Finally, she meets Bing. The trouble is, if she wants Bing's upper berth, she will have to persuade Bob Hope to share his lower berth. Written by J. Spurlin

Betty Hutton steals the show
18 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Betty Hutton is the star of this film as she steals the show with her dancing. Although she is not the lead actress, she applies herself to her dancing with abandon and commitment. You can see that she is talented and enjoying every moment of what she is dancing. She is genuinely happy, and you don't see that expression in her face where it looks as though the happiness is going to die in her eyes. This is pure unadulterated Betty Hutton doing what she does best. She even outshines Barbara Stanwyck in her cameo appearance. And to confirm Hutton's talent, she is dancing in a trio, but your eyes are focused on her. The choreography of the whole dancing sequence is sensational.
