Five songs were dropped from the release print: "Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Harold Adamson), sung with a bit of comedy by Martha Raye; the slightly risqué "SNAFU" (music by McHugh, lyrics by Adamson), sung and danced by Martha Raye, Carole Landis and Mitzi Mayfair; "It's the Old Army Game" (music by McHugh, lyrics by Adamson), performed by Kay Francis (reciting rather than singing while supposedly playing the piano), plus Raye, Landis and Mayfair; "Silent Night" (music by Franz Gruber, lyrics by 'Josef Mohr'); sung by Martha Raye; and "Mamae Yo Quero" (music by Vicente Paiva, Portuguese lyrics by Jararaca), sung and danced by Carmen Miranda. All five songs as filmed still exist. See more »

Buy War Bonds At This Theater
20 September 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Except for the musical numbers, this picture was a waste of time and talent by all concerned. The humor is strictly cornball and the plot is non-existent, the acting stilted and self-conscious. The sole bright spot is Martha Raye, who shows off her particular brand of manic comedy as well as a pretty fair singing voice. The usually dependable Phil Silvers is also on hand in a thankless role which does him no credit.

Four entertainers volunteer to go overseas to entertain the troops, and are placed in artificial plot circumstances and unfunny situations. Was this really the best the studio could do? Was there no plausible storyline to put performers in while waiting for a song spot? As stated, the musical numbers are the only reason to watch this almost unwatchable movie. Special thanks go to Betty Grable and Alice Faye for their singing cameos, and to the Jimmy Dorsey band for livening up the proceedings.
