The durable heroics of What Price Glory undergo a comedic treatment in Technicolor for this fresh version of the Maxwell Anderson-Laurence Stallings stage drama.

James Cagney, a corpulent Captain Flagg who looks like he’ll bust out of his britches any minute, and Dan Dailey, the braggard Sergeant Quirt, enact the top male roles as rivals for gals and glory with amusing emphasis on frenetics. Both are inclined to mumble or shout their dialog.

Corinne Calvet’s charms are freely displayed as the ever-loving Charmaine, ready and willing to give any masculine ally of France aid and comfort.

Story scatters itself among episodes dealing with the marines in World War I and the professional and amatory rivarly of Cagney and Dailey.

Over the entire production is a feeling that any second the picture will break into a musical number. This doesn’t happen, but it still serves as a subconscious distraction.
