During WW2, Sgt. O'Farrell's Pacific unit is demoralized when a Japanese submarine torpedoes an American supply ship containing beer.
Lt. Lyman P. Jones:
Sorry, I bit your hand but I was dreaming about Nurse Krause, again.
Sgt. Dan O'Farrell: Yeah, those reruns are murder.
As is typical of Hope's period comedies, there are many anachronistic gags in the film; e.g. references to television re-runs, a reference to Burt Lancaster in 'From Here to Eternity', the hairstyles of the women and the bathing suit worn by Gina Lollobrigida.
