As I wrote in my review of Brother Rat, the film did lose something from coming over from Broadway. There I can only speculate because Brother Rat is not a bad film. But Brother Rat And A Baby definitely has lost something from its ancestry.
The three Virginia Military Institute cadets Wayne Morris, Ronald Reagan, and Eddie Albert have now graduated and two of them are away from all the cadet hijinks from VMI. But that was the whole point of the original Brother Rat it was the military school atmosphere that was the point of Brother Rat. Without that setting Morris and Reagan are just an average pair of Yuppies before that term came into existence. Albert is still a guy with a lot of goofball wanderlust.
This film also misses William Tracy as the everflustered plebe Misto who really added something to Brother Rat. Either the writers couldn't justify Misto's presence here or William Tracy wasn't available.
In fact the main point to this story is Albert wants to go back to VMI as an athletic coach. The other two try some madcap schemes to help him. Does it work, if you're interested tune in.
