At War with the Army
- 1 hr 33 min
This is a Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis film made in 1950. It takes place on a Kentucky military base in 1944. Martin and Lewis are fomer co-owners of a night club and enlisted in the Army together. Martin makes the rank of Private First Class. He now outranks Lewis. Martin is the ever confident crooner and lover boy. Lewis is the constantly bumbling and incompetent accident waiting to happen who outsmarts the entire base chain of command. The movie introduces Polly Bergen in her first of three Martin and Lewis productions. Although Martin is hungry for a transfer overseas, his transfer was not only denied, but he's given another promotion. Lewis is just looking for a weekend pass so he can visit his wife and new child. In the mix is a base talent show that they both have to rehearse for. This provides Martin and Lewis with the opportunity to show the viewing audience their own talent by performing a couple of song and dance routines. An irreverent perspective on military logic and orders follows.
