Not much to get excited about. Takes off from a fetching theme, but that nothing much eventuates can largely be blamed on a dour and flabby script
Wallace Ford is a lively enough personality in the central role. Narrative poses him as a petty American racketeer who flees to England from a threatened rap for murder. There he turns to the army as a hideout, enlisting as from Canada. With occasional touches of humor, picture relates his doings as a recruit, adding romance to the proceedings by making Ford the third corner in a play for the sergeant-major’s daughter (Anna Lee). His rival, and a good natured one, is his barracks sidekick (John Mills).
Complications develop when Ford’s former showgirl flame from the States pops up. Ford stows away on a ship and finds himself occupying the same vessel as his regiment bound for China. The girl is also aboard. Picture goes melodramatic for the final reel.
