Even sillier than the first one

Someone, or maybe several someones, didn't pay enough attention to this sequel.

For one thing, the Jane Wyman character, for some reason never explained, or probably for no reason, has a different name. In the original, she was first called "Claire Adams" so potential dates wouldn't realize she was the daughter of the school commandant, Colonel Ramm.

In this sequel, she is named "Claire Terry" and her father is Major Terry.

While inexplicable, I guess the best approach is simply to suspend one's disbelief and enjoy the pleasant entertainment.

The story really isn't much, but the performers are among the most charming in Hollywood history.
