It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals.
In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals.
This week’s musical:
Let’s Face It (1943) – Musical #722
Bob Hope, Betty Hutton, Zasu Pitts, Phyllis Povah, Dave Willock, Eve Arden, Dona Drake, Marjorie Weaver, Raymond Walburn, Andrew Tombes, Joyce Compton (uncredited), Yvonne de Carlo (uncredited), Kay Linaker (uncredited), Noel Neill (uncredited), Barbara Pepper (uncredited),
Three wives — Maggie Watson (Arden), Cornelia Figeson (Pitts) and Nancy Collister (Povah) — are suspicious of their husbands who went on a “fishing trip.” Staying at a health farm near an Army base, the women connect with soldier Jerry Walker (Hope) and ask if he and two friends can come to the Hamptons with them to get back at their husbands. The problem being that Jerry is supposed to be getting married to his long term girlfriend, Winnie Porter (Hutton), who also runs the health farm.
