Goofs

Joan and Marcie are being driven in an American jeep driven by an American soldier from Cairo to Tunis, westward across North Africa. American troops were not based in Cairo. They landed in Algeria and Morocco. In Cairo, Kay Kyser also refers to an officer having an eagle on his shoulder (US insignia for a colonel) but this could be a liaison officer. See more »

For the boys
6 January 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Entertaining the boys during WWII was something most performers loved to do because they felt it was their patriotic duty at a time when everyone felt that conflict was a just cause. That is basically what happens in this fun filled 1943 movie directed by Alan Dawn. We meet a group of actors and singers taking an around the world trip to keep up the morale of the combating soldiers.

Featured prominently was Kay Kayser and his orchestra. Mr. Kayser was a man that felt good in front of the camera as well as conducting his orchestra and singers. Out of the talent in the film, the irresistible Joan Davis has the best opportunities. She was a funny lady with excellent timing, who could keep up with the best. Mischa Auer is also among the group of actors and singers accompanying Mr. Kayser in this world tour. Marcy McGuire is seen as the girl that stows away in the plane and makes herself a valuable asset in entertaining the troops.

The film is a pleasant trip back to those days.
