A must!! for any swing music fan.. The 'Dont sit under the apple tree' number is worth the price of c/d alone.. Performed by Andrew sisters followed by frantic jumping & jiving by a kid's dancing team.. Happy day's..
The second use of the movie is to provide fodder for all those graduate students eager for an easy doctorate in "American Popular Culture," a phenomenon that proves, if the money is right, that American universities will offer degrees in just about anything.
The barest of plots has Harry James being drafted. Naturally, his whole orchestra signs up, too, including Lon Prentice (Dick Foran), his singer who has an attitude adjustment problem. We see the high-jinks of training, a romantic encounter that will serve to straighten Prentice out, and a big show just before the boys ship overseas. All this is just a clothesline to pin on at least 13 musical numbers, and The Andrews Sisters and Harry James do most of them. The comedy intermissions are several. To give you an idea of what Universal's writers were capable of, the three-way romantic laugh relief involves Bonnie-Belle Schlopkiss (a tall and emphatic Mary Wickes), Sergeant Muggsy Sharell (Shemp Howard, who was earlier and later became again one of the Three Stooges) and Lancelot Pringle McBiff (an odd incarnation of stand up comic Joe E. Lewis). Personally, I enjoyed most Huntz Hall as a corporal trying to teach James how to play reveille.Read more ›
Had I known this DVD was from A2ZCDS, I wouldn't have bought it. They are known for their poor transfers and rip-offs.

An enjoyable film representing the period and even though I never learned the jive, I found the dancing sequences or scenes most enjoyable and foot tapping.Published 3 months ago by Ken 'Sierra One'
I am disappointed with this purchase. The picture quality is dreadful; looks like it's a copy of a very bad copy. I won't be buying from this dealer again.Published 17 months ago by JIM GREEN
