Joe is a little easier to take here than in his Stooges shorts, but still obnoxious. The slim plot has soldier Joe and lovely lieutenant Angela Stevens going on a secret mission fighting enemy troops. All the old tired army gags are trotted out with Alper the butt of most of them. Columbia stalwart Emil Sitka appears as the enemy officer. The highlight is when Angela removes her cape to reveal her shapely figure and distract the firing squad! She was one of the prettiest of the Columbia starlets and sure cuts a great figure here! The Joe Besser series was pretty lame, but guys catch this one for some prime 50s Hubba-Hubba!
