"In their first leading roles, June Allyson and Gloria DeHaven are delightfully enchanting as Patsy and Jean Deyo, a singing-dancing sister act. The girls entertain servicemen at their "home canteen" when they are not headlining the New York Club Floriano. But when handsome sailor John Brown (Van Johnson) introduces himself, their dreams really start coming true.
Soon after, a mysterious "somebody" buys the girls an empty warehouse, where they open up the ideal canteen. First-rate performances by Lena Horne, Gracie Allen (performing her "Concerto for Index Finger") and José Iturbi, with musical accompaniment from Harry James' and Xavier Cugat's orchestras, keep the joint jumpin'. And when the sisters find out who their "somebody" is, love is only a heartbeat away.
A special added treat is the appearance of Jimmy Durante as forgotten vaudevillian Billy Kipp, who sings, gags and guffaws his way back into the limelight at the canteen. With music to make you swing and songs to make you sing, this stylish romantic comedy offers a lifetime of entertainment."
