ON AN ISLAND WITH YOU (1948)   107 min.

A young Navy lieutenant (Peter Lawford) is brought in as technical adviser on a song-dance-and-swim film being made by screen star Rosalind Reynolds (Esther Williams). Having once done a number with her at a Forces show, he believes she should be his girl. Her boyfriend and fellow co-star (Ricardo Montalban) is just one of those disagreeing. Cyd Charisse (who broke her leg making this film) and Jimmy Durante also star.

The lush South Pacific island locale was actually Florida.
