British pop sensation “Jeep” Jackson’s (Anthony Newley) career is in high gear when he’s notified he’ll have to do a two-year tour in the army. Of course the musician isn’t well suited to the military life, and his antics wreak havoc on the patience of commanding officer Sergeant Lush (William Bendix). Will Jackson defeat the military with his singular personality or will a truce allow the army to soldier on? The film’s title song and “I’ve Waited So Long” were hits for Newley, and the story may have largely been inspired by his real-life mid-career stint in the army. Lionel Jeffries and Anne Aubrey also star. Directed by John Gilling.

Ironic that the original UK title is IDLE On Parade, referring to the army saying, yet this UK release uses the USA title of IDOL on Parade, referring to the pop star!
Look out for many star faces who later had very successful careers of their own - Sid James, Bernie Winters and Harry Fowler! Especially enjoy an early glimpse of Susan Hampshire, no lines just a glimpse!
Pure nostalgia enjoy!

I was taken to see this film by my aunt, who swooned over Tony Newley. I loved the songs from the film and still remember (most of) the words. It's taken so long fo this film to emerge on DVD and I am so glad it has. Copy for me and one for my aunt, now 88. Reckon she'll swoon one more time!
