All hands on deck! In the fifth of 10 Astaire/Rogers pairings, Fred trades his top hat for a sailor's cap. Randolph Scott gets the girl, Ginger gets a tap solo - and viewers get the unending delight of seven sparkling Irving Berlin numbers, including Let Yourself Go, We Saw the Sea, I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket and their sublimely powerful Let's Face the Music and Dance.
Astaire is a hoofer-turned-swabbie. Rogers is his ex-partner Sherry, now convoying the Navy around a ballroom for 10 cents a dance. But one day the fleet returns to home port and the partnership is renewed - at least for one more show. In small early-career roles, catch a very blonde Lucille Ball and a very young Betty Grable.
