Call Me Mister was filmed in Technicolor, and starred Betty Grable and Dan Dailey and co-starred Danny Thomas with supporting players Dale Robertson, Benay Venuta, and Richard Boone. Only a couple Harold Rome numbers were kept in the film.

Background

The film was a film version of the Broadway version of Call Me Mister, but was also changed to be a remake of Betty Grable's 1941 film A Yank in the RAF. It was one of Grable's final "successful" films as her box-office power was beginning to diminish. This was also Grable's final film with Dan Dailey, with whom she co-starred in several of her previous films. Call Me Mister was a "moderate success" at the box-office.

Plot

After the end of World War II American soldiers in occupied Japan are entertained with a show put on by one of their own Sergeant Shep Dooley (Dan Dailey) and his former wife who is an entertainer Kay Hudson (Betty Grable).
