One of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire‘s peppier musicals is this silly little work that also stars a very hunky  and a small cameo by . When Astaire and Scott meet Rogers and her sister (), they go mad for both of them, but being navy men they can only honour commitment up to a certain time point and then have to ship out. This delectable bit of fancy features an excellent musical score, both in song and incidental music, then climaxes with a wonderful military show in its grand finale.
