Plot [adapted by John Jacoby from a story by Michael Uris] is no heavyweight affair, but provides all that is necessary for a musical of this type. It keeps things moving at a fast pace and offers the chandelier on which the tunes can be hung. Martin capably handles the ballad department, with an occasional assist from Dick Powell, while Betty Hutton, of course, is hot on the jive. They divide up six numbers by Frank Loesser and Jimmy McHugh.
