Description by OLDIES.com:
July 1946. The war was barely over, yet nostalgia for the epic conflict was already sky-high. And who better to feed the appetite than a just-returned USO star like fabulous Frances Langford? The "Sweetheart of the Fighting Fronts" plays Louise, a nightclub singer with a sweetie of her own - at least for a night! Before farmboy turned flyboy Ransom (Russell Wade) ships out, he snaps a pic of the cutie and his crewmen paint her portrait on the nose of their B-29 to bring them luck. (Says one: "I never saw a blonde yet that couldn't wreck a city.") Their fightig prowess promises fame and love for the sweet-natured songbird - until Ransom's secret fiancée (Jane Greer) rears her pretty head! Legendary noir director Anthony Mann shows a light heart and gentle hand in this sentimental story rich in songs, smiles and star-spangled romance.
In this WW II romance, a small-time nightclub singer who works in a little Manhattan nightclub has a one-night stand with a handsome fly-boy. The next day, the B-29 pilot is sent to the Pacific and once there, his crew mischievously paints the picture of the singer upon his plane with the words "The Bamboo Blonde" beneath it. The pilot takes off to become one of the most fearsome fighters of the war, earning himself considerable renown back home. Ever the entrepreneur, the nightclub owner sees a chance to make big bucks off of the singer. He succeeds and she becomes famous. Later the pilot returns, but though he wants to be with his Bamboo Blonde he cannot for he is engaged to another -- at least for the moment.
