Description by OLDIES.com:
This light comedy has Sailor Spike Madden (McLaglen) discovering that he has competition for his girl friend in various ports of call. He finally overtakes his rival, Salami (Armstrong), another sailor, and after a fight they become fast friends. Madden meets Marie (Brooks), a very attractive little gold digger, and falls head over heels in love. Salami finds out the sad truth about Marie and has to make the decision whether or not to tell his friend, Madden. This was the Brooks performance that convinced G. W. Pabst to cast her in Pandora's Box (1928).
The rampant male chauvinism in A GIRL IN EVERY PORT might be hard for contemporary audiences to stomach, but fans of director Howard Hawks will be delighted. Victor McLaglen and Robert Armstrong play Spike and Salami, two sailors who become close pals but only after dukeing it out over a dame. Together, Spike and Salami travel all of the world in search of women and adventure and women. Their friendship is sorely tested when Spike decides to settle down to marry French fortune hunter Marie (Louise Brooks), but eventually Salami convinces his pal that this "skirt" just ain't worth it. Famed exotic dancer Sally Rand co-stars as one of the heroes' many sexual conquests. A GIRL IN EVERY PORT was remade two years later as GOLDIE, with Spencer Tracy, Warren Hymer and Jean Harlow.
