The Fleet's In is a 1942 movie musical produced by Paramount Pictures, directed by Victor Schertzinger, and starring Dorothy Lamour and William Holden. Although sharing the title of the 1928 Paramount film starring Clara Bow and Jack Oakie, it was not a remake. It was actually the second film version of the 1933 Kenyon Nicholson–Charles Robinson stage play Sailor, Beware!, enlivened with songs by Schertzinger and lyricist Johnny Mercer. The score includes the popular hits "Tangerine", and "I Remember You".
The former silent film actress Barbara Kent is uncredited by name in this film, but the uncredit-credit belongs to another younger English actress called Barbara Kent, born 1921.
This was the final film of Schertzinger's long directorial career. He died in October 1941, before this production's release.
