Rhodes is a perky radio singer who just can't get a break. Her agent (May) comes up with a guaranteed public relations scheme, announcing Rhodes as the sweetheart of Carey, a recently returned hero of World War II. Of course no such romance exists, but you can bet it does by the film's

end. The simplistic plot is just an excuse for numerous musical numbers by Jule Styne and Gannon, including "My Wife's a WAAC," "What Do You Do When It Rains?" and "I'd Do It for You." The songs are the best things going for the film, which never can decide whether it's a comedy, a farce, a

musical, or a drama. Consequently, this wartime programmer is lesser fare, with an innocuous script and some wooden performances. The exotic DeCarlo, in her second year as a bit player, had previously used her real name, Peggy Middleton, in her small roles. Roy Rognan, of the ballroom dance team

Lorraine and Rognan, died in a crash of the luxurious Yankee Clipper transatlantic passenger plane prior to the film's release. Other songs include "Left, Right" (Styne, Gannon, Sol Meyer) and "Valse Continental" (Victor Young).
