"Dakota" Smith (William Terry), a young soldier on a pass in New York City, visits the famed Stage Door Canteen, where famous stars of the theatre and movies appear and host a recreational center for servicemen during the war. Dakota meets a pretty young hostess, Eileen Burke (Cheryl Walker), and they enjoy the many entertainers and a growing romance.

Did You Know?
The real Stage Door Canteen on 44th Street was unable to be used for filming, as it was still an operating nightclub during World War II. As such, for this movie, it was re-created at R.K.O. Radio Pictures studios in Culver City, California. See more
