A Girl in Every Port is a high-spirited comedy about two sailors, nicknamed Spike and Salami, who are rivals for the attention of the same women who they “visit” in every port. Eventually resolving their differences, the two come to prefer the company of one another, at least until Spike falls for the charming Mam’selle Godiva, a carnival high diver. Following revelations that she had an earlier relationship with Salami, and that she was planning to take Spike’s money, the two men once again become rivals as jealousy threatens their friendship (Klaus Ming May 2017).
