| Classic plot with La Rue charm
Using the almost standard plot device of "Madame Behave" with Julian Eltinge and Billy Wilder's "Some Like It Hot," this drag romp puts the he-man hero in a situation where he can only survive by posing as a female. Shakespearean actor La Rue is drafted into WWII and appearing in a camp show in France when the Nazis advance. He will be shot as a spy unless he continues in his female costume. Soon he is trying to escape in the company of randy English schoolgirls. La Rue's enormous charm and just plain likableness (which I have also observed on stage) keeps the endless double entendres good clean fun. For example, amorous Nazi general: "You're all woman and something more!" Danny: "You're right!"
