Storyline

Charles is a doughboy in France; for him, war is another opportunity to sing in a quartet. He falls for Antoinette, a local bar maid. She likes him too. She encourages him to study, so he does and becomes a sergeant. But, his love life and musical career are interrupted by shooting, trench warfare, and Charlie's continual run-ins with a cranky lieutenant. A crisis befalls Charlie when the quartet's tenor is shot in the throat: Charlie hears a German soldier singing like an angel, so he hatches an elaborate plan to bring the soldier across no man's land. Can Charlie pull all of it off, including winning Antoinette's hand? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good chance to hear Chase's singing voice
17 August 2018 | by NellsFlickersSee all my reviews

This entry into the Charley Chase filmography has Charley in one of his more "masculine" roles... a WWI US Army Sergeant! The second half of the film even has him without slicked back hair!

Chase looks like he had fun doing this one. In addition to being a rather different character than usual, he gets to do a lot of singing and playing of instruments.

I am not a big Thelma Todd fan, and her role is pretty much to be seen. But if you like to look at her, you'll like her in this one!
