Starlift

Synopsis: Air Force fliers Rick Williams and Mike Nolan attempt to meet film star Nell Wayne, with whom Rick shares a hometown but not much else. Fellow film stars Doris Day and Ruth Roman mistakenly believe Rick to be very close to Nell and arrange for him to meet her. The pair begin to form a match, especially after Nell, Doris, and Ruth arrange for Hollywood stars to perform for G.I.s in transit to and from the Korean War, at Travis Air Base. But Nell thinks Rick is getting ready to ship out to the war, when in reality, he and Mike ferry troops part of the way then return to Travis Air Base with returning soldiers. Nell is furious with Rick for letting her believe he was headed to a war zone, especially because the press has made a huge story of their romance. Meantime, a new program, Operation Starlift, has been set in place by the Air Force and the Hollywood studios, whereby stars are flown to San Francisco to perform for the outbound and inbound troops.

Nell Wayne.

Hey, that's the dame you're looking for.

- Yeah.

- Not bad, not bad.

I see what you mean.

Come on, let's find the one

that's breathing.

Hey, bud,

where can we find Nell Wayne?

On-stage, 9:
OO tonight.

We wanna see her now.

- The corporal here is a friend of Nelly's.

- Oh, that's great.

When she steps out of her limousine,

he can wave to her.

Look, pal, you don't get it.

They're both from Youngstown, Ohio.

They've been like that

since they were kids.

My, what an uncomfortable position

for both of them.

"My, what an uncomfor..."

I'd like to hit him a shot...

Look, Mike, I wish you'd stop

telling people...

...that Nell Wayne and I

are like this:

- Why?

- Because we're not even like that:

- We don't even know each other.

- You came from the same town.

- You went to the same school.

- Your father was even her dentist.

But he was a lot of people's dentist.

- Did he fix your teeth?

- Well, sure.

What more do you want?

Your pivot tooth and hers

can talk over old times.

- Oh, I don't know.

- Hey, there's Ruth Roman.

Hey, you can't go in there.

RICK:

Thanks and we'll see you tonight.

- All right, Miss Roman.

- Miss Roman?

- I'd like to ask you a question.

- Well, sure.

How do you feel about love?

Oh, what is this?

The Air Force conducting a survey?

No, ma'am.

But I've got a buddy outside...

Excuse us, will you, pal?

Miss Roman, Corporal Rick Williams,

United States Air Force.

- Hi, Rick.

- Hello.

- So you're from Youngstown?

- Yes, ma'am.

Does Nell know you're in town?

- No, ma'am.

- Good, we'll surprise her then. Come on.

- Where are we going?

- To the hotel.

They're all over there.

I've already explained we can't stay

more than three or four days.

Look, Miss Roman, do you think

we ought to barge in like this?

Look, if I were like that with somebody

and he didn't come to see me...

...l'd never forgive him.

Sorry.

Someday I hope to have the pleasure

of knocking you down in person.
