This Is the Army

Michael Curtiz's two big money-makers for Warners in 1943 were Casablanca and this all but forgotten exercise in wartime patriotism. It's an adaptation of Irving Berlin's Broadway musical revue, with everyone dressed in army fatigues and waving flags as World War I vet pop (George Murphy) shows sad sack GI junior (Ronald Reagan) how to put on a USO show. With Joan Leslie, George Tobias, Alan Hale, Dolores Costello, “Sergeant” Joe Louis, and Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.”
