Bilko's group (Company B) switches the sign on their barracks with the sign on Company A's barracks. One of the names on Company B's sign is Cpt. Hiken. Nat Hiken was the creator of the original The Phil Silvers Show (1955), on which this movie is based. See more »
During the obstacle course scene, two of Bilko's men climb the rope net but can't get down. In a medium shot there's no one is on the net, although they're present in the close-up. See more »
This was one of the worst "comedy" films I have seen for years. Martin can and has done far better. I also think it is an insult to the original Sgt Bilko TV shows, starring the late, great Phil Silvers. This is because it bears little in common with the original. At times I thought I was watching one of the later, abominable Police Academy films. Not impressed.
