Description by OLDIES.com:
Julie Hampton (Lucille Ball) can tote a lunch pail and carry a tune. She's a Broadway star who's joined the Rosie the Riveters at Morgan Shipyards. Working with her is aspiring playwright "Swanee" Swanson, who insists Julie toil among the yard workers before she stars in the play he's written about them.
MGM's musical extravaganza MEET THE PEOPLE top-bills two future powerful TV executives: Dick Powell and Lucille Ball. Ball plays a popular but stuck-up Broadway star who leaves the bright lights to become a welder in a shipyard. Here she meets and falls in love with coworker Powell. This being a wartime musical, the plotline is periodically abandoned for the guest-star turns of the likes of Virginia O'Brien, Bert Lahr, Spike Jones and His City Slickers, Vaughn Monroe, and Mata and Hari. Buried beneath this cornucopia of corn is a stage play by Louis Lantz, upon which MEET THE PEOPLE was supposedly based. (Note: some sources mistakenly list Edward Dmytrk as the director of this film).
