Get Going is typical of the 60-minute musical comdies being churned out by Universal in the 1940s. A topical twist is added by predicating many of the laughs on the wartime housing shortage in Washington DC, with heroine Judy King (Grace McDonald) and her pal Doris (Lois Collier) sharing a cramped apartment with eccentrics Matilda Jones (Vera Vague) and Horace Doblem (Walter Catlett). The plot proper concerns the efforts by Judy, a typist in a government agency, to attract the attention of her handsome boss Bob Carlton (Robert Paige). To do this, she pretends to be in the employ of an enemy spy ring. It's hardly surprising that, before the end of the 5th reel, both Judy and Bob get mixed up with a genuine nest of spies.
