Plot is a satisfactory backdrop for the deluge of tunes that run through the footage. There’s nothing in the writing to tax the dramatic skill of the players, and they romp along neatly.

It’s Betty Grable’s picture, viewed strictly from the angle of physical attractions which she uses to the fullest. But she is abetted by some strong personalities in the male department. Background music score totals 26 oldies.

Phil Harris and Victor Mature portray friendly enemies, out to beat each other with a smile. It’s all good fun as long as they cheat each other at cards, win and lose their various business enterprises. It’s a more serious thing, though, when they compete for Grable and skullduggery runs high.
