Rookie Privates
1 May 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

With Universal's "Buck Privates" (1941) raking in the dough, RKO drafts funny straight man Wally Brown (as Jerry Miles), handsome heir Richard Martin (as Bob Prescott), and rotund truck driver Alan Carney (as Mike Strager) to do Abbott & Costello one better. The attraction of pretty Margaret Landry (as Peggy Linden) to Mr. Martin lead the trio to a social at her home. When Ms. Landry's maid comes down with scarlet fever, the men are happily quarantined in her all-girl boarding house. So that his men lose no training time, drill sergeant Erford Gage (as Burke) follows his recruits there. Later, the trio of draftees must escape from a hospital and rejoin their camp.

**** The Adventures of a Rookie (8/43) Leslie Goodwins ~ Wally Brown, Allan Carney, Richard Martin, Erford Gage
