Trivia

Marion Hargrove asked permission to consult on the movie, but the Army denied his request. See more »

Goofs

First Sgt. Cramp's stripes are the type worn before 1942. Before 1942 the First Sgt.'s stripes had the three chevrons and two rockers with a diamond, seen in the film. From 1942 forward the First Sgt. had three chevrons and three rockers with a diamond. The latter would have been more correct for this film since it was made in 1944. See more »

A Light Look At The Army
13 March 2002 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The movie is a light, romantic comedy that takes place at boot camp during WW2. It is not played like the Abbott and Costello movies and I don't think it was meant to be. It deals with a young, somewhat hapless young man who continually tries to do the right thing but ultimately goofs it up.

Robert Walker (Hargrove) starts out as an aspiring newspaper reporter that never quite gets the story complete. He is drafted and the fun begins. He just can't quite get the proper way to do things in the Army and, as a result, gets to spend time on KP (anyone who was in the Army will certainly remember that there was a "Hargrove" in their company). Then he meets Donna Reed (Carol Holliday) and that give him the incentive to do try to do better. However, he is still the Hargrove we have been seeing and the fun continues.

As you watch this be sure to pay attention to the supporting roles. They add a lot to the movie. Plus there are serious moments that also plays to the patriotic spirit that was in the country at that time (the movie was released in 1943). This is a fun movie, don't miss it. 8/10
