The Fleet’s In

Paul Jones, the producer of this musical version of Sailor Beware, has surrounded Dorothy Lamour with a miscellaneous collection of talent, including two first-starters who click strongly; but while he has turned out something that generally pleases, it falls short of being a smash.

Paul Jones, the producer of this musical version of Sailor Beware, has surrounded Dorothy Lamour with a miscellaneous collection of talent, including two first-starters who click strongly; but while he has turned out something that generally pleases, it falls short of being a smash.

Holden handles himself well opposite Lamour as the sailor who falls for her while the battleship crew is on furlough in Frisco.

The quarrel is less with the story itself than the musical side. There are no production numbers but an overdose of vocalists, backed by the Dorsey band.
