This is the Army
Rated
The alumni of Irving Berlin's World War I Army show, "Yip Yip Yaphank" reunite to help stage an all new World War II extravaganza - which includes Kate Smith warbling "God Bless America, " Joe Louis saluting the flag before a regiment of Harlem zoot-suiters; Ronald Reagan barking backstage orders (this time, FDR upstages him); an unnerving number of "drag" acts (performed by the original Army cast itself); and Berlin himself plaintively wailing , "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In the Morning!" (Perhaps they were showing him the rushes.) Since stars Murphy and Reagan later becomes, respectively U.S. Senator, Governor, and President, this movie has obviously become the ultimate in chauvinist camp - as witness the stirring finale, with the crowd roaring, the curtain descending and the entire cast marching off to War.
