Storyline

Kate Jones and Becky Finkelstein are doing their vaudeville act in France when World War I breaks out. Clark Jackson, a wealthy playboy, and William, his valet, are members of the A.E.F, and William becomes the top-sergeant in their unit. Evelyn, a friend of Clark's, is also in France when the war begins. They all meet, and Kate and Becky both fall in love with Clark. Kate is jealous of Evelyn, who becomes an army nurse, but, unknown to any of them, Evelyn has an American-aviator lover. When the Armistice finally comes, two of them have died in the war, but the others are all reunited. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

You're in the Army Now
10 May 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Irish Vera Reynolds and Jewish Julia Faye form a poor two-act and head off to a staging area in France, but the soldiers are more entertained by hot doughnuts. There Vera meets Kenneth Thomson, a polo star promoted to Army mule skinner. They begin a romance, but when his society friends show up as Red Cross nurses and RAF pilots, she feels put upon... Until the war intervenes.

With the success of WHAT PRICE GLORY on the stage and THE BIG PARADE on the screen, raucous stories set against the backdrop of the battleground became popular. This example of the genre has not aged well, given the rough-and-ready wooing. The battle sequences are very well done, but they make up the last twenty minutes of this movie, and don't make up for the then-popular handling of the farcical romance. Director Paul Sloane would have a long but minor career as an auteur in film, but his handling was never exceptional enough to make his works truly memorable.
