Storyline

Playboy Andy Mason, on leave from the army, romances showgirl Eadie Allen overnight to such effect that she's starry-eyed when he leaves next morning for active duty in the Pacific. Only trouble is, he gave her the assumed name of Casey. Andy's eventual return with a medal is celebrated by his rich father with a benefit show featuring Eadie's show troupe, at which she's sure to learn his true identity...and meet Vivian, his 'family-arrangement' fiancée. Mostly song and dance. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Linda Darnell was originally cast in the role of "Vivian." But her marriage to the much-older cinematographer J. Peverell Marley ran her afoul of studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, and she was put on suspension. Sheila Ryan replaced her in the role. See more »

Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goof: As the passengers disembark the ship within the first 3 minutes of the film, a series of mechanical-looking large shadows can be easily seen moving across the painted backdrop of buildings intended to be far in the distance. This is actually a stage set of a musical production, thus not filmed as a real scene. See more »

Andy Mason: Yeah, where's it coming from?
Edie Allen: Where's your imagination?

The film that deserves to go to DVD
31 October 2004 | by spiceboy_incSee all my reviews

This is one of Carmen Miranda's films that deserve to go to DVD for scores more to enjoy. The latest rumor to hit the DVD release community is that there are talks to release this to DVD. Although it's script is campy and Ms. Miranda butchers the English language; the film is still light hearted and filled with wonderful musical numbers. If you're lucky to catch this on TMC or AMC you defiantly need to watch this if 40's MGM musical's are you thing. This film was right in the middle of Buzby Burkley's success in lavish musical numbers and that alone is worth the viewing. This film also marks the Carmen Miranda's noted, "Lady in the tutti fruiti hat" song.
