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>

5 January 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This, the third in the series of Roach 'streamliners' -- short comedy features about 50 minutes in length -- about Sgt. Doubleday, the instant non-com with the photographic memory is, like the others, an unremarkable comedy, some good bits placed in a script that often seems to start and stop, but it does have one great positive value in the performance of James Gleason, a funny and highly talented comic performer for thirty years in Hollywood. Usually cast in some role that suited his lower-class New York accent -- check him out as the cab driver in THE BISHOP'S WIFE -- here he plays the regimental colonel: vain, pompous and father of a very pretty daughter who, with the issue of pistol shooting, is the core of the story.

If you feel that he is not enough to make this movie worthwhile, I certainly understand. But for me he made the difference between a dull hour and a pleasant one.
