Storyline

Wally Hogan has things going his way. He is the manager-trainer of Bullet Bradley, a fighter who has just won the lightweight championship. Life suddenly takes a not-so-happy turn, however, when Bullet gets drafted. Hogan's gangster partners "persuade him to enlist and keep an eye on the fighter, who is subsequently declared psychologically unfit for the Army. Enter Herbet Tuttle, a draftee eager to have Hogan turn him into a fighter. Hogan Reluctantly agrees only after he discovers Tuttle's aunt is the beautiful singer at a nightclub. From then on it's a case of stringing Tuttle along while trying to get close to his aunt. To further complicate Hogan's life there is a rulebook Military Police Officer who tries to squish the shenanigans. Written by Nathan Face <face.2@wright.edu>

This film is well worth watching.
3 March 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Not only do Bob Hope and Mickey Rooney deliver enjoyable performances, there is a great character, "Chow Hound" portrayed by Norman Leavitt. Mr.Leavitt is one of those wonderful character actors whose face you have seen a million times but might not remember his name. After watching "Off Limits", you will never forget him. For years I have enjoyed his performances in many "Andy Griffith" and "I Love Lucy" episodes as well as his performance in the feature "The Blue Gardenia" directed by Fritz Lang. Also, he was in one of my all time favorite films, "Harvey" as one of the cab drivers. The cast of "off Limits" should have gone on to make a sequel, it was like watching a charmed ensemble cast movie.
