Typical fifties services comedy in which the guys try and get one or more over on the brass. This one has Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovaks, and in particular, a mad-cap, jive-talking high-energy Mickey Rooney each given roles that fit them to a T and its a lot of laughs. Kovaks' early death was a great loss to cinema. Early Dick York and later Kathryn Grant before she married Bing Crosby, She was a wide-eyed cutie and I missed her.
