Plot Summary
Hattie (Ann Sothern), the boisterous, lovable owner of a Panama hotel --- which is more of a temporary home to American sailors with names like Red (Red Skelton) and Rowdy (Ben Blue) than high-society types --- finds herself thrown for a loop when she falls for the rich and urbane Dick Bulliett. Though love supposedly can conquer all, including obvious class differences, Dick and Hattie must first survive the sabotaging attempts from Dick's enamored admirer, rich girl Leila Tree (Marsha Hunt).
