Lois Moran Aims at George O'Brien
27 May 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Three sailors are on the town, looking to pick up some local lovelies, but it's not Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin in New York, New York, but George O'Brien, Noah Young and Tom Dugan in a French port in North Africa, where they find belly dancer Lois Moran. She's a good girl, and after George rescues her from some grabby locals, she takes him him to meet grandpa. She thinks it's love and marriage, but before he can explain there's no "and" about it, the ship signals leave is cancelled and they're gone.

Lois follows to New York and gets a job at a dance hall run by William Demarest, who means to have his way with her, but before that happens, along come the sailors, two of whom decide they still owe Lafayette a little interest and beat O'Brien into unwilling matrimony. At that point....

Like many a comedy, it's at its best before the plot kicks in, with many a well-rendered sight gag under the supervision of director John G. Blystone. The best role is not the among leads, but Gwen Lee's, who is true to the Navy when it comes to Georgie. Boris Karloff has a small role early on, and Randolph Scott an uncredited bit, but I didn't spot him. Although it quickly falls into typical patterns, at an hour's length this doesn't have time to bore.
