Hattie Malone is a brassy nightclub singer in Panama. She tries to adapt to the upper-class world of her fiance, Nick Bullett, who is an officer in the armed forces. He is the divorced father of an 8-year-old girl. Hattie asks that he send for the girl before the wedding. She spends most of the first act trying to gain the childs approval of her as a future stepmother. In the 2nd act, she wins over Nicks boss, Whitney, by uncovering a plan to blow up the canal. There are many pre-war musicals that have slipped into obsecurity and heres one of the most delightful: In its first run Panama Hattie was a fun and kooky musical vehicle for Ethel Merman. The score is both lively and catchy, with two big hits, Ive Still got My Health and Make It Another Old-Fashioned.
