Popular comic strip disappoints on the screen!
15 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Although they started off with a most promising base in J.P. McEvoy's popular comic strip, "Dixie Dugan", screenwriters Lee Loeb and Harold Buchman failed to come up with a screenplay that did Dixie justice. There's virtually no plot in the movie at all, but Washington's wartime accommodation shortage gets another going over. Charlie Ruggles is supplied with some sarcastic comebacks and there's a bit of slapstick fun with an incendiary bomb. Alas, director Otto Brower does not have a flair for comedy. His timing is way off in several scenes. The movie is not half as funny as it would have been in the hands of some other Fox contract "B" director such as Mal St Clair who did such good work in '43 with "Jitterbugs" and "Dancing Masters".
