Give Me a Sailor ★★½ 1938

Hope and Whiting play brothers, and fellow Naval officers, who meet sisters Grable and Raye on shore leave. Naturally, there's comic romantic complications until a double wedding ends the farce. Not much of a musical score from Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin but the movie's fun. Based on a play by Anne Nichols. ♫What Goes Here in My Heart?; A Little Kiss at Twilight; Give Me a Sailor; The US and You; It Don't Make Sense. 71m/B VHS, DVD . Bob Hope, Martha Raye, Betty Grable, Jack Whiting, Clarence (C. William) Kolb, Nana Bryant, Emerson Treacy; D: Elliott Nugent; W: Frank Butler, Doris Anderson.
