In 1951, 20th Century Fox released a Lloyd Bacon-directed film version with a storyline corresponding with current events. Only three songs from the Broadway production were retained. Set in Japan during the transition period between World War II and the Korean War, it starred Betty Grable as American USO entertainer Kay Hudson, who crosses paths with former husband Shep Dooley (Dan Dailey), determined to win her back despite the presence of her current beau, Capt. Johnny Comstock (Dale Robertson). The plot basically served as an excuse for Grable and Dailey to demonstrate their dancing skills in routines choreographed by the legendary Busby Berkeley, who had collaborated with Bacon on the 1933 film classic 42nd Street. Cast as a GI who hates the army, newcomer Danny Thomas performed a truncated version of his own nightclub act, and an unbilled Bobby Short played the piano in several sequences, and sang Going Home Train, one of the few songs retained from the show. Benay Venuta, Richard Boone, and Jeffrey Hunter rounded out the cast.
