Bill Benson and Ted Adams are to appear in a Broadway show together and, while in Paris, each 'discovers' the perfect leading lady for the plum female role. Each promises the prize role to the girl they selected without informing the other until they head back across the Atlantic by liner - with each man having brought his choice along! It becomes a stormy crossing as each man has to tell his 'find' that she might not get the role after all.Written by
During the "Ya Gotta Give The People Hoke" number Bing Crosby and Donald O'Connor go into a prop room, pick up a prop, go on stage, do a "bit" and go back to the prop room. About midway through, Bing comes out on stage wearing a Fireman's hat. There is a pile of brownish debris and several piles of white material that were not there a second before, indicating that one or more "bits" had been cut after filming. See more »

I will let you all in on a little secret. People do not go to musicals for the story. They go for the athletic dancing, the fashions and the musical style of the film. Repeat after me: They do not go for the story. As incredible as it may be, the story is a just a vehicle to carry the dancers and musical talent along. It is NOT the main reason. If MGM or Paramount or whoever place major musical stars in a picture, it means it wants to see them PERFORM. As the audience does. The story, well it is - just a what did I say....... A vehicle to show off their talent on celluloid. This one, set on a ocean liner is as snazzy as 50s pix get is only dulled by the awesomely boring mummy's boy of all time BING CROSBY. However it is livened by effervescent clever Donald O'Connor and Mitzi Gaynor.. and Edith Head clothes. The Porter songs are great and the pic/look is sent up later by Kelly and Maclaine in 1964 at Fox in WHAT A WAY TO GO. Gorgeous fun. And not so much about the story.
