Bring On the Girls is a lightweight musical with some sprightly tunes by Jimmy McHugh and Harold Adamson, and a neat production. The book [from a story by Pierre Wolff] is one of those things, but Girls is fast paced all the way and has the benefit of gorgeous Technicolor plus other productional accoutrements that stamp film as being top-budget.

The book [from a story by Pierre Wolff] is one of those things, but Girls is fast paced all the way and has the benefit of gorgeous Technicolor plus other productional accoutrements that stamp film as being top-budget.

It’s the story of a young millionaire with a proclivity for becoming engaged to dames who are out only for the money. So he joins the navy, where he won’t be so wellknown, but he becomes linked to a gold-digging ciggie girl (Veronica Lake), and thereafter the travail concerns whether or not Lake will get him.

Story becomes pitiful at times, and it remains for Bracken’s performance to salvage much of it. Sonny Tufts and Lake and Marjorie Reynolds are somewhat obscured by the story.

There are a number of neat specialties, particularly a couple of hoofing numbers, and there’s some comedy by Spike Jones’ orch.
