Two wild-spirited cadets at the Virginia Military Institute, Morris and Reagan, try to hold back their rule-breaking tendencies in the weeks before graduation, but things get a bit harried when their buddy Albert, who is secretly married, learns that his wife is pregnant. They hide

Albert's wife in the barracks during the pre-graduation football game and prom, and, meanwhile, Reagan starts romancing the commandant's daughter, Wyman, and Morris woos Lane. All three young men get their diplomas without any of the school's officers really knowing what went on. Although this is

generally a very enjoyable adaptation of the Broadway play, it was a mistake to alter the original work by making Albert's role a secondary one. He still manages to steal the show. Having won the hearts of New York audiences in the original production, Albert started his wonderful career in film

and television with a delightful first appearance here. Reagan does well as the playful nice guy, as does Wyman as the restrained daughter of the strict camp commandant. Their meeting during this film prompted their famous romance and marriage.
