Plenty of talent here, but no one could coordinate it. Mature is an army private in line for a tidy inheritance if he marries socialite Ball. He has seven days leave in which to win her affections and runs into the usual problems before finally succeeding. The premise is good, but too many

disjointed scenes leave it out of whack. This was the first film work for choreographer Charles Walters who would soon climb the ladder to the top rung among MGM's musical directors. Victor Mature at the conclusion of this mixed bag joined the Coast Guard where he remained for the rest of WW II.

Songs include: "Can't Get Out of This Mood" (sung by Ginny Simms), "I Get the Neck of the Chicken" (sung by Marcy McGuire), "A Touch of Texas," "Please Won't You Leave My Girl Alone?" "Baby, You Speak My Language," "Puerto Rico," and "Soft Hearted" (Frank Loesser, Jimmy McHugh).
