| Tiresome WWI romantic comedy/drama with William Boyd as the star...
Three carnival workers romance the same girl until WWI interferes with their plans. They join the Navy and the plot meanders all over the place with tiresome effect.

WILLIAM BOYD (later "Hopalong Cassidy") spouts his dialog in a slow-moving way, and ROBERT ARMSTRONG and JAMES GLEASON mug their way through some silly shenanigans as sailors looking for a good time. Boyd is the Chief Petty Officer who comes out of retirement to rejoin the service. GINGER ROGERS is the carnival gal who can't seem to decide whether to get serious about Boyd or not, until the finale.

It's hopelessly contrived and full of hokey situations, dated dialog and interesting only for a glimpse of the Naval ships.

Summing up: Totally unsatisfying from almost every standpoint.
