    Patriotism and transvestism. A strange combination, to say the least. Guess if you're a certified All American, like Irving Berlin, you can get away with it and the Hays Office folks won't come a callin. However, about Irving Berlin the musical genius there are no two opinions. Anyone who can write "I Hate To Get Up In The Morning" and "What The Well Dressed Man In Harlem Will Wear" and make them equally convincing, as Berlin does here, is a rare songbird indeed. And he didn't have a partner like Lerner and Loewe or Rogers and Hammerstein! So let's give it a solid B for Berlin's rousing show (sandwiched around a bland movie). P.S. If, as previous reviewer Joe F said, actors today love this country half as much as actors did in WW 2 maybe it's because this country today is half as worthy of love as it was then. And that's flattering it.

    This Is Irving Berlin at His Best!! (Songs AND Writing) Such An Entertaining & Patriotic Film!! It Was Also Fun To See Mr. Berlin Singing, "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In the Morning," In the Show Within the Movie!! As Most Classic Film Fans Probably Know, "This Is the Army," Was "Based" On A Show Mr. Berlin Put On During WWI, Called, "Yip Yip Yaphank!!" ("This Is the Army," Was Also A Broadway Musical In the 40s, (Proceeds Also Went To Army Emergency Relief)/Show Toured Again In the 1970s!! All of The Proceeds of the Movie, $9.6 Million Dollars, Went To Army Emergency Relief!! During WWII, Touching & Patriotic Shows & Films Like "This Is/Army," Were So Very Well Received & Needed, Especially for Keeping Up Moral!! Seeing Those Army Troops, Unexpectedly & Surprisingly, Having To End the Musical Show, To Go Into Probable Battle, Was Indeed Very Touching & Emotional. I Can Only Imagine How It Felt For Wives Parents, & Families To See There Sons Having To Go, After Seeing Their Husbands/Sons In the Show. The Film Stars, George Murphy, Ronald Reagan, Joan Leslie, Alan Hale, Sr., Rosemary DeCamp, George Tobias, , Among Others, and Cameos By Kate Smith, In Her Most Famous Rendition of, "God Bless America," Frances Langford, (Boxing Champ, & Army Vet), Joe Louis, and, As Mentioned Above, Irving Berlin Himself!! Wish It Was Played More Often On TCM!! (HINT, HINT!!)

    I love this movie. You get a nice feeling seeing it because although it was a terrible time when people were dying all over the world, their was a togetherness throughout the whole country that comes through on the screen. Those were the days of truly patriotic actors and actresses. I only wish today's group of actor's would have half the love for this country that that group did. God Bless Them all.

    I usually like musicals, and this one was no exception! I found it entertaining, and comical in some areas. I was pleased with it though. I would recommend watching it, especially if you are into army movies!
