Aimiable Army Comedy
17 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The soundtrack blares out 'Girls in Arms' and you suspect this was the original title of the film, from the same people who'd made the nautical farce GIRLS AT SEA shortly before. Certainly 'Operation Bull' is only an incident toward the end of the picture.

Naunton Wayne is the exasperated Major Pym, in charge of a World War Two anti-aircraft unit with women in the majority. They can get little right, with some competing for the affections of ladies' man Lieutenant Brown - Donald Sinden in the days before he acquired that extraordinary accent. When his wife Betty - the adorable Barbara Murray - is somehow posted to the unit, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and compromising situations are the inevitable result.

This is a likable mixture of farce and time-honoured comical army routines. Dora Bryan loses her skirt on parade, while Peter Jones is a weapons enthusiast with an unintelligible Stanley Unwin-type patter. Some years later, Jones also featured in the crude and mirthless CARRY ON ENGLAND, which had a similar theme and identical ending. Best moments though are the scenes between Brown and Betty, their relationship complicated by man-hungry Carole Lesley.
