Cheap war comedy makes up for it in energy and strangeness
I chanced upon this and found myself laughing at the stupidity cascading across the screen. Just to give you a notion of where this film is at: during a nightclub number the hostess pulls off her garter belt and tosses it into a crowd of marines and other soldiers. This causes a riot as the men fight and crash around the room in a desperate chase to grab the garter belt. The garter belt starts jumping around the room by itself! Not a lot, just enough for you to be completely startled by the weirdness. Later the two heroes are in the camp shower room shaving. One yells out "TWEEZERS!", a hand reaches into the frame and gives him a pair of tweezers. He proceeds to pluck his eyebrows! The final chase is typical but actually filmed better then several similar Abbott & Costello or Laurel and Hardy chases from the same period.
Hey most wartime fodder is unwatchable, this wasn't a classic but it didn't hurt either.
