Betty Grable goes to a resort in Miami posing as a wealthy heiress in order to ensnare a rich husband. She gets Don Ameche instead, but at least he really loves her and they sound great together singing duets. This piece of fluff is completely harmless, less enjoyable than Down Argentine Way (also starring Grable and Ameche), but colourful and fun thanks to everyone in the picture dancing and singing up a storm. The film was made back in the heyday when Miami was actually considered a fantastically exotic place.
