Storyline

A Marine Sergeant(Alan Hale Jr.) wounded in overseas combat service (WW II), requires an operation, and Navy psychiatrist Captain R. S. Handler, recommends to Marine Captain Russ Morgan and Colonel Winters that "Sarge" be given a few weeks rest before hospitalization. Through Dean McKinley of San Juan Junior College, Sarge enters the school on a temporary basis. The Teen-Agers are rehearsing a school show and Freddie is worried because they have no band. Freddie, Dodie Rogers and Betty Rogers find Sarge asleep in the park, and the girls put him up at their house when they learn he can't find a room. Betty has a row with boyfriend Roy , and in order to make him jealous gets Freddie to invite her to the school dance after telling Freddie that his girlfriend Dodie is going with Sarge. Many misunderstandings follow but all is well when Sarge gets his marine captain to bring his band over to the school for the school's BIG SHOW. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A bit of nostalgia related to this fine forties musical

As a young boy, sick and home from school, I happened on this wonderful musical that really touched me. I was probably 11 or 12 years old and watched in my living room in Pomona, NY on my very small family Motorola TV some older kids sitting on a stage, singing into a phone to their friend in the hospital. I never saw the film again but as I grew up, I thought about it from time to time. When I turned fifty (10 years ago)I sort of became obsessed with the idea of finding that film. The only thing I knew about it was the scene that I mentioned above and the fact that Candy Candido was in the film (Candy was married to Anita Gordon who "sang" the part of Linda on the record titled 'Linda" with Buddy Clark... My favorite childhood song... but that is another story...). After about six years of searching and with the help of IMDb, I finally identified my lost film and through the help of Linda Kay who runs the Frankie Darro fan site, I was finally able to have a copy of the film. I love the film and will always cherish it.... SRD
