Three WAVES--Williams, Evans, and Blaine--set their respective amorous eyes on Sullivan, Brasselle, and Miller. Before they can get their men, the female trio have to go through a variety of song and dance numbers, as well as Williams' token water ballet. Having female sailors chasing

males makes an interesting variation of the more common reverse story line, but the picture is still predictable formula fare. The cast gives it occasional spurts of energy, and during a show-within-the-show Debbie Reynolds and Bobby Van sing "Oh By Jingo" (Lew Brown, Albert Von Tilzer). Original

but inconsequential musical numbers include: "Hold Me Close to You" (Harry Warren, Ralph Blane, sung by Billy Eckstine), "What Makes a WAVE?" (Warren, Blane, sung by Williams and the DeMarco Sisters), "What Good Is a Gal Without a Guy?" (Warren, Blane, sung by Williams, Evans, Blaine), "Skirts

Ahoy?," "Glad to Have You Aboard," "The Navy Waltz," "I Get a Funny Feeling," "We Will Fight," "Hilda Matilda" (Warren, Blane).
