THE SAILOR TAKES A WIFE

At a New York Canteen, sailor John Hill (Robert Walker) meets USO hostess Mary (June Allyson) and they elope the same night before he ships out to Europe. But John is unexpectedly classified 4F and discharged, leaving him and Mary to set up house sooner than expected, and realizing that they know very little about each other. A series of circumstances leave the newlyweds unable to spend their first honeymoon night together. Mary's ex-fiancee and boss Freddie Potts (Hume Cronyn) is anxious to split the newlyweds up. Beautiful, European downstairs neighbor Lisa Borescue helps out by introducing John to prospective employer Mr. Amboy (Reginald Owen), and she's also anxious to seduce John. Eddie "Rochester" Anderson rounds out the main cast as the building superintendent.

Joe DeRita has a brief walk-on as an inept waiter in the first reel of the film.
