While Ellison's singing is nice, the film is very clichéd and about as exciting as watching worms crawling across the sidewalk.
James Ellison stars as Sergeant Gray in this WWI musical romantic comedy. However, as you watch the film you wonder if the US Army was THAT desperate that they'd make this knucklehead a sergeant!! He is not a very good soldier and is a bit of a fathead. In fact, he even bets his fellow enlisted men that he can wrangle an invite to the General's house for breakfast! Along the way, he gets into lots of wacky situations, meets and falls in love with the General's daughter AND captures two enemy spies! Despite all this, it's amazing how bad the film is--mostly because it's so dull. Additionally, it's filled with clichés and is a film I can't see a sane person recommending! Not a horrible film but certainly not a good one. The best aspect might be the singing (which I usually dislike) as Ellison did have a nice voice. But this just isn't enough and the film comes off as cheap and dopey.
