RKO cobbled together their contract players and also some other movie sets to come out with this musical comedy. The players were known at that time, but they weren't top tier talent. What came out was a movie, perhaps a second feature, which helped pass the time but was hardly a work of art.

My main interest in this film was Wally Brown and Alan Carney. I found a previous comedy of theirs, "Rookies in Burma", hilarious when it was first released, but I was only about six years old. "Zombies on Broadway" still holds up as funny.. They're not very funny in "Seven Days Ashore"; they try a few shtick, borrowing other comedians style, but their routines fall flat. The music and dancing show a lot of energy-Marcy McGuire tries so hard that you that you wonder if the studio is violating some labor laws-but the result is ho- hum.

Two gorgeous secondary players, Virginia Mayo and Amelita Ward do a credible job in their share of comic bits. This was an early Virginia Mayo picture and she went on to stardom. Amelita Ward married Leo Gorcey, who didn't want her to work, and her career ebbed away. This trivia might interest fellow movie history nerds.
