The third film in the "3 Smart Girls" trilogy starring Deanna Durbin as Penny Craig, the youngest sister in the Craig Family. Now all grown up, she goes to work in a munitions factory during World War II determined to do her bit for America whilst wanting to be close to a young pilot, Bill Morley (Joseph Cotten). He gets posted overseas leaving Penny to worry for his safety. One of the film's songs was nominated for an Academy award.
The serial numbers on three planes can be seen when the filming was conducted in the factory. All three went to the same air base in Ridgewell , England. Two of the planes, later named Tinker Toy and Whale Tail II, were shot down on the same mission in December of 1943. See more »
When they show the home movies, a bug can be seen crawling around on the camera lens. See more »
Third and last in the series that started with Three Smart Girls Deanna returns as Little Miss Fix-It Penny Craig all grown up and faced with a problem she can't fix, her love interest is headed off to war, and she has to face the situation like an adult. Deanna is full of her usual snap and vigor and by this point had become a very beautiful woman who had matured in her reactions so she doesn't come across as quite such an eager beaver.
As with all her films this provides several opportunities for her to sing which she does with angelic clarity and grace.
