The first six Roach "Streamliner" service farces starring William Tracy as photographic-memoried but fallible inductee Dorian "Dodo" Doubleday and Joe Sawyer as aggravated top sarge William Ames are collected here. When Dodo quickly ascends to the rank of sergeant thanks to his smarts, he suddenly finds himself on a date with a gorgeous WAC (Elyse Knox)...which sends former drill instructor Ames into a jealous fit! Series opener "Tanks a Million" (1941) also stars James Gleason, Noah Beery, Jr. Having shown off his book smarts--and shown up Ames--at the C.O.'s gunnery class, Dodo pays for it when he has to take on the unit's best marksmen in a shooting match! "Hay Foot" (1942) co-stars Douglas Fowley. Ames takes a flush Dodo out for a night on the town--which finds them crashing a swanky society party, as well as a few vehicles--in "About Face" (1942). Margaret Dumont, Jean Porter, Marjorie Lord co-star. Ames seeks to make Dodo look bad when he assigns him to train a clan of recruits from the sticks. It literally backfires when they prove to be natural snipers, in "Fall In" (1943). Arthur Hunnicutt, Frank Faylen co-star. As they finally ship out, Dodo and Ames have to contend with a pretty nurse (Marjorie Woodworth) on board--as well as, possibly, a Japanese spy--in "Yanks Ahoy" (1943). Mustered out, Dodo returns to his job on the police beat of the city paper, and he's soon tangled up in the murder of a showgirl who'd been blackmailing his boss. Of course, Ames is the cop assigned to the case, in Here Comes Trouble" (1946). Betty Compson, Joan Woodbury co-star. 5 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
