When Betty Hutton begins to write a letter, she is shown in medium shot and she is obviously just scribbling on the paper, but after the cut to an over-the-shoulder shot, the writing does not match and it is neat and legible. See more »
[With a whiskey flask]
I got something here that'll warm us up but quick. Have one?
Well, down the hatch as you sailors say.
[Looking at the flask]
Hah! That's the stiff that puts waves on your permanent.
Sure you won't have one?
Did you leave any?

This is a movie that turned out to be much better than I thought it would. I had been led to believe that it was a light, patriotic movie. Certainly it was patriotic. However the story line was really quite good. Betty Hutton was challenged to play twins and to play two different personalities (one bubbly and scatterbrained, the other far more serious). She pulled it off very well indeed. The movie keeps getting better as Susan (the bubbly one) plots to get Johnny (Bing) for herself while Johnny really wants Rosemary (the serious one). As the plots and the misunderstandings grow there is also a show to put on that is touring the country to get women to enlist in the WAVES. There is good music and there are numerous scenes of light humor. This one qualifies in my book as good fun.
