| Gold diggers wherever you turn
The rather silly premise behind Bring On The Girls keeps this one from being a top drawer comedy. Still the quartet of leads, Veronica Lake, Sonny Tufts, Marjorie Reynolds, and Eddie Bracken keep it amusing.

Eddie Bracken plays the heir to a vast fortune and that fortune gives him a great popularity with the opposite sex. But the kind he dates only are interested in his fortune. That can disillusion anyone so he decides to join the navy and avoid the gold diggers.

The family however insists that Bracken have someone be with him and former swing band piano player Sonny Tufts is hired for such a purpose. But who do you think they run into at one of the nightclubs Bracken likes to frequent. Cigarette girl Veronica Lake who broke it off with Tufts on the mistaken belief he was cheating on a wife. Lake has larceny in her heart and she plots a campaign to attain her meal ticket.

Not that there aren't any nice girls interested in Bracken, one such is heiress Marjorie Reynolds who has enough of her own money. But Bracken has this yen for women like Lake.

I don't think I need draw you a map to say how this one comes out. It's for people like Bracken that eventually pre-nuptial agreements were invented.

It's also fascinating that the family was wealthy enough to pull strings to make sure Tufts is with Bracken in perpetuity himself.

Paramount splurged for color for this film which seemed strange to me. They did not do this for their money in the bank stars like Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. They did however get Spike Jones and his City Slickers to do a very funny version of one of their novelty numbers Chloe.

The whole idea behind this film is dumb, but the stars keep it interesting and every redblooded American straight male wanted Veronica Lake to be interested in him.

Who Nearly Landed a Gig on "Saturday Night Live"?

"Saturday Night Live" creates stars faster than you can say, "Live from New York!" But here are 30 big names the sketch show passed on.
