The wild and wacky doings dreamed up by Nunnally Johnson are dressed up considerably in eye appeal by having Betty Grable and Sheree North running through most of the footage in costumes appropriate to their striptease profession.

Bearing only a fleeting resemblance to the 1933 stage play, She Loves Me Not (and a subsequent screen version) these caperings concern two strippers who can identify the bald-headed man who guns down ecdysiast Noel Toy right in the middle of her act in a San Francisco honkytonk. He promises the two dolls the same treatment if they don’t get lost. They do, and after a bus ride along the coast take refuge in a fraternity dorm at a college.
