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>

Silly, Colorful, Inane, Nostalgic, Retrodriven, Sentimental if one of these doesn't match you, don't see this movie!
23 September 2004 | by SPIFFYKITCHENSee all my reviews

This movie is also outlandish, swingish, avant garde, and surreal. I wish I had never seen it, then I could see it for the first time and it would be all new, and I could be bowled over! Numerous screenings have numbed my impressions, The Lady in the Tutti Fruitty hat doen't seem that outrageous, the banana ballet doesn't seem so strange, the Polka Dot Polka is kinda neat, Even Benny Goodman singing Padukah, (Probably in response to the success of Glen Miller's Chatanooga Choo Choo) seems not to out of the ordinary, however Alice Faye singing 'No Love - No Nothing' does seem stale, especially when she picks up her off to war husbands slippers and fondles them. But this is the early forties and if your not a hep cat, a few things will be astray. One has to wonder - Technicolor was very expensive and not too common in 1943 - The head of 20th Century Fox must have said to Busbee Burkeley - Here buzz take this color - and make the most colorful movie ever - and I think he succeeded - Hook me up Soldier!
