Up in Arms

Genre: Musical; Starring: Danny Kaye, Dinah Shore, Dana Andrews; Director: Elliott Nugent; MPAA Rating: Unrated

This typically implausible service musical, which marked Danny Kaye’s first appearance in a feature film, makes its laserdisc debut here in exemplary fashion — with spectacular restored Technicolor hues, as well as an additional music-and-effects audio track. But if you’re too young to remember World War II, Up In Arms may be a bit puzzling. Why, for example, is the tough ship captain sleeping in fancy pajamas? Why are the male soldiers continually dancing together? And those scantily clad WACs voguing above-deck? What is this — Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Goes to War? Extremely weird. B
