Six AM: that's when society vamp Valerie Parks rolls home after a glamorous night out. Six AM: that's when Pvt. Valerie Parks gets up to hut two three four in olive drab and sensible shoes. Lana Turner stars in a breezy comedy about an heiress who must prove her maturity to gain her inheritance, so she hatches an immature plan: join the WACs, fake some gravitas and quit as soon as she gets her manicured hands on the dough. Happily, Uncle Sam and World War II combine to help a spoiled little rich girl grow up.
