A Broadway director helps the West Point cadets put on a show, aided by two lovely ladies and assorted complications.
This was the first time James Cagney and Doris Day appeared in the same film. Five years later, they would co-star in Love Me or Leave Me (1955), one of the best musical biopics ever made. Day would garner some of the best reviews of her career (and also top the Billboard Charts with her soundtrack album) while Cagney would be Oscar nominated for Best Actor.
Elwin 'Bix' Bixby:
I'm a West Point cadet!
Jan Wilson: You're a what? If things are that bad, I'd better unload my government bonds!
At last minute, Jan (a female movie star) makes a surprise appearance in a role in an all-male West Point revue, in a part everyone assumed was to be played by a man. But a few minutes later there's a photo of her in closeup in the program featuring stars of the production.
