This Broadway success is rife with hilarity and fun. It does not sport an intricate plot, but instead relies mainly on the inherent humor of certain characters and situations. It all begins in an Army camp down in the hills of Kentucky. Sergeant Johnson, who practically runs the post, is trying to get a transfer from his dull desk job into a combat outfit. A misunderstanding arises, however, involving a silly, gravid woman. With this, everything seems to go cockeyed, and the farce is plummeted into a whirl of action involving a sad and lost little soldier who never says a word; a gangly hick who keeps getting tetanus shots every time he applies for a leave; a loud-mouthed, big-dealer sergeant; a colonel, whose wife receives army intelligence before him; a very green lieutenant; several fluttery women; and a handful of gold-bricks. That, now, is an explosive and merry mixture!
