| Maisie the riveteer
After being an assistant in John Qualen's dog act which runs amok in a nightclub due to James Craig's boisterousness, Ann Sothern finds herself once again on her uppers and with a bit of difficulty finally winds up working at a defense plant doing her Rosie the Riveteer thing. It's another job to put on her post war resume.

Craig's a test pilot at this defense plant and despite his bumptious nature as characterized his nickname of 'Breezy' he's a likable if a bit dumb sort and Sothern kind of likes him to. But he's got eyes for Jean Rogers who Sothern has taken in as a roommate in Connie Gilchrist's boardinghouse.

Rogers is some piece of work and I can't say more less I give the plot away. Though Craig himself is thick as a brick the way Ashton Kutcher was on That 70s show.

Swing Shift Maisie is a wartime bit of cheer and it's both easy to take and gives you a good glimpse of the home front in the early 40s.
