Few B-picture factories ground out topical wartime dramas with as much regularity as Monogram. In Army Wives, Elyse Knox plays bride-to-be Jerry, who follows her GI fiance Barney (Rick Vallin) from camp to camp. Thanks to numerous complications, both foreseen and otherwise, Jerry and Barney never quite make it to the altar-at least not during the first five reels. That shameless old barnstormer Marjorie Rambeau effortlessly steals the film as Mrs. Shannahan, matriarch of a loud and rowdy brood which figures prominently in the storyline. Either by accident or design, Army Wives was followed in 1945 by Monogram's GI Honeymoon (not a sequel!)
