In post-WW2 France, U.S. Army hospital private Hogan and Captain Lock try to outwit one another on issues such as wooing pretty nurses, accounting for missing medical supplies, organizing unauthorized dances and influencing their C.O.
Both Roger Smith and Jack Lemmon were associated with Mister Roberts (1955). Lemmon played Ensign Pulver in the movie, and Smith played Lieutenant Roberts in the television series.
Everything was going so nicely.
When Mickey Rooney arrives at the ball with his group of hot musicians, a careful count shows only five of them (beyond Rooney himself) in the jeep. But when they are playing at the dance, there are clearly six of them (not including Rooney) -- trumpet, trombone, sax, bass, drums, and accordion.
