One night on leave, he meets a beautiful cigarette girl named Teddy, at a nightclub. She knows who he is and strings him along.

Trivia

Another Jones production number, "That Old Black Magic", was also considered for this movie. See more »

Alternate Versions

Most existing prints - including the version shown on the satellite and cable movie networks - are missing 40 seconds of the Spike Jones production number, "Chloe". The telephone joke following Red Ingle getting a mouthful of snow involved Eleanor Roosevelt, and would have been considered outdated after the death of FDR. Sacrificed along with the joke was a sequence with Spike Jones playing the pinball machine. See more »

A pleasant comedy that is consistently underrated by critics
27 December 2000 | by efrayim_ben_avrahamSee all my reviews

"Bring on the Girls" is a light-hearted comedy of errors. Poor little rich boy Eddie Bracken is looking for a girl who'll love him for himself not his money. Veronica Lake is a gold-digging cigarette girl, and Sonny Tufts is the guy from her past. Despite some weak slapstick humor from time to time, there are some witty dialogues. Veronica Lake is able to rise above the material and has some nice one-liners and amusing moments. A good movie to curl up in front of on a rainy night or day when one wants a cheerful diversion. I enjoyed this movie.
