Comedy, Musical, War
Ronald Reagan stars in this upbeat charmer about life during World War II. Reagan plays Johnny Jones, the son of a famous choreographer, who is assigned to create a new all-soldier show for Broadway called "This is the Army." Reagan not only has to live up to his dad's reputation, but has to fend off his fiancé, who is ready for marriage. This amusing film was directed by Michael Curtiz ("Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Casablanca"), and features some of the best loved stars of the era, including Alan Hale, George Murphy, Joan Leslie, and Kate Smith, not to mention the stirring music of Irving Berlin!
