Storyline

Soldier Johnny Grey is engaged to marry singer Mapy Cortes, but his plans go awry when he learns that he is the heir to $100,000 from his great-grandfather -- a bequest that comes with a catch: before claiming the money, Johnny must marry a descendant of his great-grandfather's Civil War enemy, General Havelock-Allen. Not wanting to disrupt his planned marriage to Mapy, Johnny must figure out how to concoct a temporary marriage-of-convenience with the descendant -- who turns out to be the beautiful Terry Havelock-Allen.

Trivia

Russell Hoyt, Frank Martinelli and Richard Martin are listed in studio records/casting call lists playing uncredited "Members of Financial Trio," and some references picked up that credit. However, no financial discussions takes place in the movie, other than those with the main characters. Since Richard Martin was seen in the film as a soldier and has virtually no lines, it can be assumed the other two are soldiers also and that the trio's participation in the plot was cut from the film.

Early Ball and Mature
20 March 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Bouncy little musical programmer. For Lucy fans, there's little of her slap-stick comedic talents. Instead Ball gets to parade around statuesque style in high fashions of the day. And what a gorgeous young woman she was. Plot-wise, there's the usual romantic mix-ups this type musical trades on-- plus, token numbers from the bands including luscious songbird Ginny Simms, and a couple of forgettable novelty acts. Comedy's supplied by the inimitable Arnold Stang (before Milton Berle drafted him), an impish Marcy McGuire, and a gravel-voice Harold Peary soon to get his own Gildersleeve series. But get a load of Victor Mature. He's looser than I've ever seen him, mugging it up in hammy style, and a long long way from his later noir persona. The movie's pretty typical of war escapism, lots of winsome girls and brave servicemen to lighten the load. Nothing special, but a good chance to view Ball in a different kind of role, along with a goofy Victor Mature, of all things.
