Summary
Three sailors have a 24-hour shore leave to enjoy New York. They are especially concerned with the female inhabitants of the city, and each finds his own to cuddle up with. Chip tries but can't resist the advances of a cab driver, Ozzie gladly fills the role of a lovely anthropologist's "prehistoric man," and Gabey finds the model who poses for the Miss Turnstiles advertisements, who isn't quite the glamorous celebrity he envisioned
