Description by OLDIES.com:

Stateside life after World War II poses a challenge for pretty ex-WAVE Jean Madison (Wanda Hendrix). Jilted and jobless, she is taken under the collective wings of four ex-airmen who show her the ways of the non-working world. Master scroungers, led by their old bomber captain Jimmie Stevens (Edmond O'Brien), the boys have a big brother feeling for the girl, though Jimmie is feeling much more than brotherly. Jean holds them, and especially Steve, at arms length, hoping that her no-show cad of a lover will come to her rescue. But Jimmie has plans of his own that lead to a bout in the boxing ring in a crazy effort to prove his love to Jean.

An off-beat post-war romantic comedy, The Admiral Was A Lady features strong comedic performances from the appealing cast. Edmond O'Brien made another movie in 1950 that was a career landmark, the critically acclaimed noir classic, D.O.A. Wanda Hendrix was working through a very short, very troubled 7-month marriage to war hero Audie Murphy while shooting this film, but her game performance betrays none of her private turmoil. Rudy Vallee does a perfect supporting turn as a stodgy millionaire with a trick "sacroiliac".

Product Description:

Four ex-G.I.'s do their best to avoid work so as to be able to spend their time pursuing an ex-wave. This madcap comedy features a top-notch cast.

Lovely little film Movie Lover: from REDWOOD CITY, CA US -- July, 30, 2010

This movie was included in a 50 pack of various movies and as I made my way through this set,I came upon "The Admiral was a Lady" with Edmond O'Brien,I thought this movie was nicely done and very cute.It made my box set well worth having.
