A nice post-war version of the William Tracy series
8 April 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

William Tracy played Sergeant Doubleday in a cute series of films made during both WWII and the Korean War. I especially liked TANKS A MILLION, though they were all very good for B-pictures with very modest budgets. In this case, though, the war is over and Doubleday and his annoying friend, Sergeant Ames have found domestic jobs--Doubleday as a crime reporter and Ames as a cop. The only reason Doubleday got the job is that his future father-in-law hates him and wants to either see him get beaten up or chased away by local mobsters. Ames is, quite frankly, an idiot and makes a real mess of it as a cop. Both men work together at times to try to uncover who the mob leaders are, but almost get themselves killed in the process. There is a lot of slapstick, but apart from the overlong ending, it is handled expertly and the film is quite engaging. In fact, if the end hadn't just degenerated into a way too long fight sequence, the film could have easily earned a score of 8. Likable characters, good writing and a breezy script make this a fun little film that is well worth seeing.
