Mixes music, comedy, a spy spoof and patriotism into one lame film.

Audience Reviews for Ship Ahoy

MGM musical with a silly wartime plot; Red Skelton gets the Metro star treatment at the expense of Eleanor Powell, who was on her way out. Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra (including Frank Sinatra) get the best musical numbers including the hit song "Last Call for Love."

Silly bit of nonsense but with Eleanor tapping, Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra playing, Virginia O'Brien deadpanning, Frank Sinatra showing up for a solo and Red Skelton and Bert Lahr horsing around why complain about sense.
