Product Details

REMASTERED Buzzell and Powell return to collaborate on this musical comedy tale of tap, pulp and espionage. Red Skelton stars alongside Powell, a year before the pair would "Dood It" under the ministrations of Vicente Minnelli. Skelton plays a pulp hack whose plots are hijacked by foreign agents for an espionage smuggling scheme. Powell plays the dancing dupe who is conned by the enemy agents into smuggling stolen plans for a prototype magnetic mine aboard a cruise. Luckily for her, the enemy agents cribbed their plan from prolific pulpster Merton Kibble (Skelton), and the hapless hack just happens to be on the same cruise. Co-starring Bert Lahr and the Sinatra era Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the film features an amazing musical number in which Powell tap dances a secret message in actual Morse code!
