The Fleet's In (1942)


Victor Schertzinger  


Walter DeLeon (screenplay),  Sid Silvers (screenplay)  


Dorothy LamourWilliam HoldenEddie Bracken  
In this, the third screen adaptation of the musical revue Sailor Beware, William Holden plays Casey Kirby, a shy sailor who through a series of misunderstandings develops a reputation as a world-class lady-killer. In order to save face, Casey has to persuade "The Countess of Swingland" (Dorothy Lamour), a popular Big Band vocalist, to give him a big kiss in public. But the Countess is no pushover and has little sympathy for sob stories, so Casey soon learns his work is cut out for him. The Countess' best friend, Bessie Dale (Betty Hutton), is a bit less shy around the menfolk and sets her sights on Casey's buddy Barney Waters (Eddie Bracken). Betty Hutton made her screen debut in this movie, and she sings the novelty number "Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing in a Hurry." Hutton is backed by Jimmy Dorsey and his Orchestra, who also perform several other numbers, including their hit "Tangerine."

    Brings back memories of the movies I loved as a youngster.Somehow I missed this one at the time.

  2. great music 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 18th 2018

    This is a great 1940's era musical comedy. Great dancing, wonderful singing and 40's band music. They don't make movies like this anymore.

  3. Old fashioned good humour and music 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 17th 2018

    This was a very old fashioned musical with a nice story and a lovely ending, plenty of music and dance. No drugs, violence of abuse of women, in fact thoroughly enjoyable.

  4. Fun Forties Musical! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 9th 2018

    So happy to find this movie available at Zeus, since it's impossible to find anywhere else! The film features a great cast with the top stars of the 1940's - a very young William Holden, beautiful Dorothy Lamour, cute Eddie Bracken, and Betty Hutton at her over the top best! Additional bonus with musical numbers by Jimmy Dorsey & his Orchestra - featuring Bob Eberly & Helen O'Connell!
    Just a fun film to watch!
    I'm also very happy with the quality of this film - no problems at all. The service from this company was excellent as well - great price, and shipped in a timely manner (with an email notifying me of shipping). Would buy from again, and would recommend!

  5. Betty Hutton steals the show 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 13th 2017

    Terrifically entertaining movie! Lots of laughs and good music too. Excellent cast. Eddie Bracken and Betty Hutton are great together. For me she just steals the show with her infectious non-stop enthusiasm. Enjoyed her singing and dancing and some of her gags are just hilarious.Highly recommend!


  6. The Fleets In Great Entertainment 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 23rd 2015

    I thoroughly enjoyed "The Fleets In". The black and white print was very good. This is a great wartime entertainment movie with excellent performances from Dorothy Lamour, William Holden, Eddie Bracken and Betty Hutton. Not forgetting Cass Daly with an hilarious sketch, and an amazing crazy ballroon dance couple.
    Thoroughly recomended. And of course the introduction of songs "Tangerine" and "I'll Remember you.
