Cast & Crew
Eddie, Bugs, and Sunny, three ham actors, find themselves in a misfortune and decide to join the CMTC and acquire free food and lodging. At a recruiting station, Eddie mistakes Corporal Halligan of the Cavalry for a civilian representing the CMTC, and as a result they are all enlisted in the Army for 3 years. At the post, the three rookies try to impress the troopers with their own importance, and Eddie starts a flirtation with Dorothy Clark, a sergeant's daughter, incurring the wrath of Darby, her escort; but later he is rescued by Dorothy and sings a song he has written for her. Darby, however, thrashes the winsome recruit; and though Eddie claims to have been thrown from a horse, Darby admits his guilt and is punished. Eddie is cold-shouldered by everyone but proves his courage in battle maneuvers; he rescues Darby from a stable fire; and, before he dies, Darby asks Eddie to take care of Dorothy. Thus, Eddie wins back the respect of his fellows and the girl.
