Peggy learns that the club's owner, Harrison (William Frawley), intends to enlarge his show and she persuades him to give her and her friends a tryout.

Very enjoyable, not often seen Andrews Sisters flick
2 April 2005 | by stevendmSee all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable film.

The Andrews Sisters had only one memorable song in this effort, the Pennsylvania Polka. While it is not as well known as some their other WWII era efforts, it was surprisingly good.

William Frawley makes a very good nightclub owner. He is a hardboiled kind of guy, quite a different character from his My Three Sons persona.

It will not have you rolling in the aisles. There are some good one-liners, but overall it was just a humorous little flick.

If you can catch it on the late-night movies, by all means stay up and watch it.
