Pvt. Snafu is on North African desert patrol. He's too smart to get caught by an enemy booby trap. He avoids the booby-trapped shower, but that camel with a contact mine for an udder... Then he finds an Arab harem full of barely clad beauties. There's the hookah full of TNT instead of tobacco, and one of the girls has bombs where her shapely curves should be. And there's a piano. The music for "All Those Endearing Young Charms" rests on top. One of the keys is booby-trapped with explosives, but Pvt. Snafu can't seem to get that last note... Written by
