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.

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
