In this musical comedy, an agent for an advertising agency begins trying to push a new "Blind Date" service and so engages two popular USO singers to perform for the Navy. He hides the young women and keeps their looks a secret because the two singers are terribly unattractive. To keep the sailors from booing them off the stage, the adman decides to have two prettier models lip-sync the songs. Unfortunately, the ad agent's plans go awry when the homely singers decide to elope with two nice sailors. Songs include: "I Surrender Dear" (Harry Barris, Gordon Clifford), "We Did It Before and We Can Do It Again," "All Over the Place" (Charles Tobias, Cliff Friend), and "When Johnny Comes Marching Home."
