Description by OLDIES.com:
Mickey Rooney (Breakfast at Tiffany's) stars in a musical spectacular about three sailors on leave in Los Angeles. Rooney plays Moby Dickerson, a wide-eyed rube who constantly falls for the tricks of his shipmates, Joe (Dick Haymes, State Fair) and Skip (Ray McDonald, Good News). The three sailors end up on the island of Catalina, where they continue to get into comedic situations and all fall in love. Directed by Richard Quine (Bell, Book and Candle) and written by Blake Edwards and Richard Quine (The Pink Panther), ALL ASHORE is a film with big musical numbers, great dancing and lots of laughs! Newly remastered.
Co-written by director Richard Quine and Blake Edwards, ALL ASHORE has so many excellent individual components that one wishes the sum total was better than it is. Mickey Rooney, Dick Haymes and Ray McDonald play a trio of eternally broke sailors, on shore leave at Catalina Island. Because of his propensity for getting into trouble, Rooney is the drudge of the group. Even so, it is Rooney who stands the best chance of succeeding when all three gobs set their sights on lovely millionaire's daughter Barbara Bates. McDonald's perennial dancing partner Peggy Ryan is on hand for a few musical numbers, while Haymes gets to display his rich singing voice as he woos Jody Lawrance. Highlights include an elaborate "opera bouffe" dream sequence and a running gag involving a pianist with twelve fingers.
