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)!

Lucky Shot
16 January 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

At "Camp Carver", intelligent but gun-shy Sergeant William Tracy (as Dorian "Dodo"' Doubleday) writes a morale-boosting speech for his Colonel James Gleason (as J.A. Barkley). During a firearms lecture, Mr. Tracy shows off his photographic memory in front of teacher Sergeant Joe Sawyer (as William Ames). But Tracy is really afraid of guns. He also likes Mr. Gleason's beautiful daughter Elyse Knox (as Betty), but so does fellow Sergeant Noah Berry Jr. (as Charlie Cobb). Lucky shots during a fishing trip give Tracy a sharp-shooting reputation. Later, a mix-up puts all three Sergeants on a date with Ms. Knox. "Hay Foot" is a likeably done situation comedy, but with material that is far from outstanding.

***** Hay Foot (1/2/42) Fred Guiol ~ William Tracy, Joe Sawyer, James Gleason, Noah Beery Jr.
