| Betty Grable in surprisingly good wartime romantic drama...
You know from the beginning that TYRONE POWER had better shape up as more than a playboy if he wants to win BETTY GRABLE's love in this entertaining wartime romance from Fox. Betty acquits herself very well in all the dramatic moments and looks as fresh as a daisy. Tyrone is at his handsomest and has some stiff competition in the "other man" department from JOHN SUTTON, who finally had a more substantial romantic role than usual.

What with the romance between Grable and Power being shaky at best, you just know he's gonna have to reform himself with some wartime heroics as an R.A. F. flier before there can be a final clinch between the two.

Crisply written with some good, natural dialog, beautifully filmed in glorious B&W, it's a well crafted film that deserves more attention from Betty's fans in particular. There's some nice chemistry going on between the three mentioned stars and it's certainly a worthwhile film to watch for fans of nostalgia. REGINALD GARDINER does a nice supporting role job as Power's debonair best friend.
