The Lady Takes a Sailor Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Though she may have won an Oscar in 1948, [[Performer~P77721~Jane Wyman~janewyman]] still had a Warner Bros. contract to fulfill, even if it meant appearing in frivolities like The Lady Takes a Sailor. It all begins when Jennifer ([[Performer~P77721~Wyman~janewyman]]), the head of an oceanographic research institute, claims to have made a fascinating underwater discovery. It is suspected that she's made this claim so that her funding will be continued, so the money-men send Bill Craig ([[Performer~P50575~Dennis Morgan~dennismorgan]]) to investigate. Disguised as a sailor, Bill accompanies Jennifer on her next expedition, just to see if her story was true. Jennifer falls in love with Bill, neglecting her work in the process. When Bill is revealed to be a fake, things look bleak--but not for long. [[Performer~P2128~Eve Arden~evearden]] has all the best lines as [[Performer~P77721~Jane Wyman~janewyman]]'s sarcastic best friend (the sort of role [[Performer~P77721~Wyman~janewyman]] used to play in her blonde-ingenue days). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
