The men, headed by officer Andy Cyphers check into a house with four resident geishas and immediately misunderstand what a geisha does for a living. Once they get straightened out about the musical, cultural, and educational background of geishas — and after spending some time with the four women, the men begin to pair off.

    Glenn Ford seemed to have made a whole career out of playing the nice, straight ahead Military Officer!
