Vera Reynolds is Corporal Kate in this WWI comedy-drama. Shipped off to the front to entertain the troops, Irish-Catholic showgirl Kate and her Jewish pal Becky (Julia Faye) encounter all manner of merry misadventures. Things get serious, however, when both Kate and Becky fall in love with the same doughboy, Private Jackson (Kenneth Thompson). This romantic triangle is rather bluntly resolved when tragedy strikes on the battlefield. Produced by Cecil B. DeMille, Corporal Kate was in part a showcase for Julia Faye, DeMille's longtime "secret" girlfriend.
