Storyline

Captain Gillis (Frank Faylen) puts Sergeant "Dodo" Doubleday (William Tracy), because of his photographic memory, on a candidates list for Officer's Training School ahead of Sergeant William Ames (Joe Sawyer), much to the dismay of the Ames. The latter, in an effort to make Doubleday look bad, puts him in charge of the training of the Hatfield clan, a raw-to-the-max group of recruits from Kentucky. That they are all sharp-shooters does Doubleday no harm. Meanwhile, across town, a highly-respected citizen named Arnold Benedict (Clyde Filmore) and his tall squeeze Lydia (Rebel Randall) open up an in-house canteen for the soldiers. That Arnold is a German Spy comes as no great surprise to students of American history or Hal Roach films. Joan (Jean Porter), Dodo's girl friend (and ample proof that Dodo is smarter than he looks and acts), discovers that all the house-plants in the house are armed with listening devices feeding directly to the basement where most of Hollywood's German-actor...

Fall In (1942)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Hal Roach comedy with William Tracy and Joe Sawyer is in the same vein as Tanks a Million. In this film, Tracy plays a Sgt. wiz who can remember anything he reads, which gets him his own platoon but this doesn't with well with the jealous Sawyer. Tracy has to train a bunch of dumb rednecks from Kentucky before finally tracking down some Nazis. I'm not sure how many films were in this series but so far I've enjoyed the two I've seen enough to where I'd seek out the others. These aren't anything great but with the running time of 45-minutes they fly by with some nice laughs along the way. Being from KY, I got a kick out of the redneck training sequence.
