Movie Info

This peppy wartime musical stars Bing Crosby as radio crooner Johnny Cabot, the heartthrob of millions. To escape his frenzied fans, Johnny joins the Navy, where is he ordering to aid a WAVE recruiting drive. He is helped(?) in this endeavor by Betty Hutton, amusingly cast in a dual role as twin sisters Susie and Rosemary, one a shy retiring brunette, the other a bold and brassy blonde (Vera Marshe doubles for Hutton is some scenes).

Audience Reviews for Here Come the Waves

This movie may remind you of White Christmas when you read about it, but it's slightly different, and it's a good, funny movie. Of course the romance in the movie is predictable, but I say watch this for the comedy, and for Crosby.

Good music well sung, the story is steeped in patriotism, fittingly since it came out during WWII. Bing is fine and easy going, Betty plays twins, the brunette Betty is low key and likable but the blonde Betty is way too much. You want to reach through the screen and tie her down and gag her just for a moments peace!!

Betty Hutton and Bing Crosby are terrific in this wartime comedy musical. It's lightweight entertainment and highly enjoyable. Peppy songs, fun performances.
