Military Academy instructor Oliver Yates is 4-F and losing the respect of his students. He quits to join up but ends up working in a shipyard. His rival Charlie for girlfriend Ruth uses the info against him, spreading lies about his wartime activities.Written by
A mild teacher at a military school for young boys is keen to elevate himself to hero status by enlisting to fight in WW2. However he is refused entry due to a perforated ear drum, a condition about which he sees an eminent doctor, who assures him that with care, and a little time, is curable.
Due to his enlistment being just postponed, in his eyes, he tells what he believes to be a small lie, telling his former students he has been accepted and is in Army training. He thinks this will be of no consequence because he will soon be accepted.
Guess again, the results of even just one harmless lie lead to chaos in his temporary job at the shipbuilding yards, the military school, his boarding house, the FBI, the military and police.
Claire Trevor's presence is a joy to watch as the love interest, while the rest of the cast are competent.
Another hard to find movie that is worth the time to search for.
