Storyline

Colonel Barkley is very proud of his assistant, Sergeant Doubleday, who has a photographic memory. Doubleday shows off his book knowledge on firearms during a class given by Sergeant Ames, embarrassing him. Through a series of misunderstandings, Colonel Barkley thinks the gunshy Doubleday is an expert marksman, and he sets him up in a shooting match against Ames and Sergeant Cobb (the division's shooting champions)! Written by B. Patrick T. <BPatrickT@worldnet.att.net>

Funny Film But No Plot
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SGT Doubleday is smart, and the favorite of his commanding officer. He remembers everything he reads, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the military. The only trouble is, he is unable to shoot a gun. Meanwhile, the base's two loud-mouths and sharp-shooting experts have it in for Doubleday because they think he's a know-it-all. Somehow the commander becomes convinced that Doubleday is an expert marksman. Will Doubleday be able to learn how to shoot a gun in time to compete in the sharpshooting competition and win the love of the commander's daughter? Don't ask me, the movie ends suddenly with almost no sub-plots getting resolved. No real explanation of the title, "Hay Foot" is offered either. Doing a search on the internet didn't reveal much, except that it may have been a kind of slang for a rookie recruit. Since this was the second film in the SGT Doubleday series, this doesn't make much sense though.

Nevertheless, it was a pretty entertaining film.
