Storyline

Two Marines who spend their lives battling each other find themselves stationed in Russia, where they fight over a sexy Russian girl; from there they go to Brooklyn, where they both set their sights on a pretty blonde who flirts outrageously with both of them; and finally they wind up in a South American country where they fight for the favors of a beautiful senorita and try to put down a rebellion by the locals at the same time.

sez you
9 December 2006 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

These are the adventures of marines Flagg and Quirt which were first seen in "What Price Glory"This film really has little plot and just seems to be a combination of episodes where the two characters played by McLaglen and Lowe in what can only be described as a very broad manner,continually try to get the upper hand against each other whether it be in the romantic field or in military matters.The humour is definitely pre code.El Brendel introduces his girl as "the lay of the land".The joke being that she has a map of the country in her hand.Maltin says this film runs like slow molasses and by god he is right.I can only presume that they were so enamoured of the Movietone process that they decided to make this their big production.If you were to cut out all the exchanges where they are saying"Sez you" "Sez me"i think that you would loose half the running time.I know that i thought that films today are far to long.Well it seems that they have many precedents for this.
