There's a girl in every port, but none of them have names. This prototypical buddy movie, about two seamen who drink, fight, and chase women, has only one substantial female role (for actress Louise Brooks). The real love interest is between the guys, one of whom says, "That big ox means more to me than any woman."

Upon further review: Technically, a couple of the girls do in fact have names because one of the guys keeps an address book and we glimpse their names and addresses. But these are still bit roles.
