Probably my rating is more sentimental than objective. I saw the movie when I was eleven years old in 1942, having developed a significant crush on Dorothy Lamour from her earlier movie, "The Fleet's In". Still, the movie was highly enjoyable and featured a lovely song entitled "A Full Moon and an Empty Heart" which I still occasionally play on the piano even now. I have never been able to get a recording of this song, nor have I been able to get a copy of the movie on videotape.
