In this British WW II comedy set in France, the bored Englishmen stationed there entertain themselves by putting on a vaudeville show. Many of the soldiers have great fun dressing up and performing as women. Just before the show ends, a battle erupts and they must fight. Some of them are still in drag. Songs include: "I'll be on My Way," "Encore," and "Lanky Carrie Fra' Lacansheer."
