Plot Summary
When an unassuming sailor, Casey Kirby (William Holden), goes backstage for a famous actress' autograph, he winds up kissing her for a publicity photo. As it circulates, Kirby earns the reputation of a ladies' man among his friends. But when his friend Barney Waters (Eddie Bracken) bets that Casey can kiss the standoffish "Countess of Swingland" (Dorothy Lamour), he finds himself out of his league. With Barney as his wingman, Casey makes his earnest -- and bumbling -- move.
