WWII USO nostalgia
This film obviously was directed mainly at homesick GIs. The Hollywood stars on this fabricated USO tour are mostly among the secondary ranks. However, cameos of Fox's 3 reigning female musical-comedy divas during the war are also included. Betty Grable, Alice Faye and Carmen Miranda sing their signature love songs over the radio to complement the live entertainment. Phil Silvers as the official male escort for the 'girls' is definitely a plus. He was consistently under-appreciated by Fox as a comedian, being mainly used to liven up some of their second rate films. Martha Raye serves well as his female counterpart. Actually, she began her Hollywood career as more of a singer than a comedian, and she does a bit of both in this one. Mitzi Mayfaire, mostly a Broadway dancer, supplies nearly all the dancing for the group. She was cute, flirtaceous and vivacious: definitely a plus. Too bad she didn't get more film roles. Carol Landis mainly filled the desire for a classy-looking blonde. Her USO tours were the highlight of her short life. Although she had a variety of marriages and other romantic relationships in her short life, apparently she was unable to find any lasting romantic or professional relationship. Kay Francis essentially served as the 'girls' chaparone. Dick Haymes was boring in his usual slow forgettable romantic ballads. Otherwise, the film chronicles some of the hardships that USO stars likely encountered. It doesn't include the severe health problems that Carol Landis suffered as a result. This film is included in one of the DVD compendiums of Alice Faye films, much to the displeasure of most reviewers.
