Goofs

Following the scene where Panama (Jack Holt) gives Lefty (Ralph Graves) a spanking in their tent, Lefty jumps up from the cot. As he does so, his toupee becomes dislodged, falling forward so that the top of his balding head is revealed for a split-second. Actor Graves immediately pushes the hair back before the camera cuts to another angle. See more »

Very entertaining old movie
4 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is certainly familiar from many other movies, notably "Tell it to the Marines". The old timer versus the cheeky new recruit. And of course the girl that the sergeant wants is actually in love with the recruit, who feels rotten about it because the sergeant has been so nice to him. But the characters are interesting, particularly Jack Holt's,the camaraderie is nice to watch and there is plenty of action, flying scenes and battle scenes,fascinating shots of old time airplanes, all of which make this a fun movie to watch, which after all is the important thing in a movie of this type.Very pleasant entertainment in spite of the sound problems.
