War-time films set in stateside training camps abounded in the early Forties. Often, these films utilized the basic plot points of programmers but set the action in the contemporary locale of an army camp. Tom Neal (Detour) plays Wally Williams, a trainee who’s so full of himself that his fellow candidates — and maybe the audience — dislike him. Handsome, cocky, and self-centered, Wally is itching to show up his fellow classmates… especially in front of pretty Carol Harkness (Evelyn Keyes, The Killer That Stalked New York). Wally senses a rival for Carol’s attention and sets his sights on Frank Molloy (Bruce Bennett, Mildred Pierce), an infantryman returning for officer training who struggles with the coursework despite being the only student with actual war-time experience. Utilizing actual footage from Camp Davis, N.C. to augment the backgrounds, veteran Columbia director Alfred E. Green brings us a tale with interesting characters and a plot where self-sacrifice goes wrong. Also features Columbia players Frank Sully, Jeff Donnell, and Hugh Beaumont. Newly remastered.
