Mamie settles down in Hawaii, hoping to start a new life. Though her prospects look good when she falls in love with a science-fiction writer who treats her with the respect she deserves, the dawning war and the fallacies of her previous lifestyle complicate their budding romance. Mamie cannot fully remove herself from her former profession, and provides some of her old services to the sailors stationed in town. Searching for another means of financial security, Mamie invests in several pieces of real estate and becomes quite wealthy, though her bad reputation has not been forgotten by the locals.
Plot: In 1941, prostitute Mamie Stover (Jane Russell) has no choice but to flee San Francisco when the police turn on her and want her out of town. Figuring Hawaii would be a great place to begin anew, Stover books a trip aboard a Honolulu-bound boat, where she happens to meet writer Jim Blair (Richard Egan), who is quite taken with the former streetwalker. However, when the ship reaches Hawaii, Stover soon falls back into her old ways and begins working at a nightclub, much to Blair’s dismay.

The irresistible Jane Russell in the thick of things at Pearl Harbour 1941.
Jane Russell is blindingly magnificent as always, but the one who actually steals the show is Agnes Moorehead as her employer in a Hawaiian night club in Honolulu, an establishment for lovely girls to entertain American soldiers but very strict on rules and morals. Jane Russell gradually advances into a leading position, as the incident of 7 December 1941 at Pearl Harbour breaks out. Jane Russell makes a very interesting character here, being thrown out of San Francisco as an undesirable prostitute (probably being too successful) and settling for a new life in Honolulu just in time for Pearl Harbour. A soldier finds her, and there is a passionate relationship – this is a very romantic film. However, his condition is that she leaves the establishment, while Agnes Moorehead persuades her to stay on and not let the soldier know. Of course he gets to know about it, and the obligatory crisis follows. Nevertheless, the conclusion is rather satisfactory. It’s a colourful fireworks etertainment with romance and war and Jane Russell as the irresistible scandal beauty making the world go around. The music by Hugo Friedhofer is terrific, maybe his best, and adds a consistent enjoyable flavour and perfume to the film, which gets more and more fascinating as the plot with its complications rolls on. Jane Russell’s beauty is something that just has to be irresistible to anyone – maybe especially if she plays a tramp.
