Goofs

The hammocks that Groucho and William Bendix are shown lying in are not navy hammocks. Navy hammocks do not have the spreaders seen on the hammocks in this film. Navy hammocks were designed to take up as little space as possible. And without the spreaders the hammocks is safer to use and more comfortable to use. See more »

Bert Sedgwick: I came around to see you. Made a few inquiries and found out that work here.
Jane Sweet, a dumb blonde: You needn't have gone through all that trouble. I could have told you.
Bert Sedgwick: Except I didn't know where to find you to ask.
Jane Sweet, a dumb blonde: Well, if you would've found me, you wouldn't have to ask.
Bert Sedgwick: [befuddled] Yea. Yea, that's right...

Groucho Marx guarantees some good time
15 August 2006 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

Groucho Marx and William Bendix play two navy buddies, Benny Linn and Tim Dunnovan, who get a race horse that turns out to have a twin.They try to make a little money with the help of the twin horses.Chester Erskine's comedy A Girl In Every Port from 1952 isn't all that bad of comedy, if you ask me.It has got Groucho Marx in it, who can safe any movie.If course this doesn't reach near the classic stuff he did with his brothers Harpo and Chico, but he still gets to deliver some witty lines that safe a lot of this movie.William Bendix doesn't stay too much behind.He and Groucho make a great team.Marie Wilson plays Jane Sweet, a dumb blonde and isn't at all dumb in her role.Don DeFore does also good job as Bert Sedgwick.This movie may not be a masterpiece, but pretty good anyway.It made my Sunday afternoon a little better.
