GOOD 1939 musical comedy with Honolulu (fairly newly discovered/popular at the time in US) as a setting - after the boat trip.
The Brooks Mason/George Smith dual identity plot aspect became a bit annoying to me, but there was some good dancing and comedy to make up for it.
I particularly enjoyed Eleanor Powell's black face tap dance tribute to Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson doing his famous stair steps dance routine.
And it was fun to see/hear Gracie Allen at an earlier time than I had previously seen her before (she was already 44) - quite a charming shorty (only 5' 0") comedienne. I especially enjoyed the comedic qualities of her speaking voice.
