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 »

Much better if you also watch the DVD extras...
1 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Four Jills and a Jeep" is a film about four entertainers who leave the comfort of the United States and head overseas to do their part for the war effort. The stars are Kay Francis, Martha Raye, Carole Landis and Mitzi Mayfair (who was famous for her stage work).

When I watched "Four Jills and a Jeep", a assumed that this film was pure fiction. While I know some actresses DID go to the front lines during WWII, I assume Twentieth Century-Fox chose the four featured actresses purely according to who was available. However, after watching one of the special features on the DVD for this film, I watched "The Real Four Jills" and learned much about the background for the film. It turns out that the story was based on a book by Kay Francis about her and the other three women in the film and their experiences traveling together to entertain the US troops in North Africa and England! So, the story is ESSENTIALLY true. What I mean by that is that the four stars were correct but the film was made here in the States AND liberties were taken with their story. So, while the film is pretty good, it's even better knowing the background for their story. Overall, it's enjoyable and worth your time. Plus, while I usually don't like cameos, I really liked seeing and hearing Alice Faye (in a tiny scene) sing her signature song, "You'll Never Know"--a tune that always gets me. And, that jitterbug sequence....WOW!

By the way, I was just curious and read through the five stars' biographies on IMDb for Kay Francis, Carole Landis, Mitzi Mayfair, Martha Raye and Dick Haymes and found that between them, they had 24 marriages! And, while I already knew this, Landis killed herself at age 29. Yikes...such is the Hollywood life.
