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.
Ship Ahoy is a cute film. It is about Miss Winters is a dancer with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and is asked to secretly transport a prototype magnetic mine to Puerto Rico. Eleanor Powell and Red Skelton give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Edward Buzzell did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the music and romance. Ship Ahoy is a must see.
