The musical quickie Hi'Ya Sailor was produced by Universal, the same studio responsible for Hi'Ya Chum, Hi, Buddy, Hi, Beautiful and Hi, Good Lookin'. Donald Woods plays Bob Jackson, a song-writing sailor who is taken to the cleaners by a crooked song-publishing racket. Left in the cold, Bob and his buddies make the rounds of the legit publishers in hopes of making a sale. Along the way, he falls in love with perky Pat Roger (Elyse Knox). The plotline is merely a thread to tie together such musical guest stars as bandleaders Ray Eberle and Wingy Manone, The Delta Rhythm Boys, the Lou Diamond Quartet, Mayria Chaney and her Dance Trio and the Nilsson Sisters. All this in a mere 61 minutes!
