An often-funny film with good performances from everyone concerned, NEVER WAVE AT A WAC came out of the ill-fated Independent Artists Company, a firm begun by onetime RKO boss Floyd Odlum. Russell is the daughter of Dingle, a US senator, and the ex-wife of Douglas, a man who dabbles in

textiles. She is a Washington doyenne and becomes a WAC because she thinks it might be fun. An expected commission doesn't materialize and Russell is enlisted as a private. She and her new beau, Ching, are stationed at the same base, and Russell is reasonably happy, despite running into Douglas,

who makes her act as a tester for his new fabrics. Wilson is a stripper who is around to add to the laughs. She has joined the Army to get away from the lounge lizards who trailed on the outside. Filmed at the Disney studios, with locations at the WAC Training Center in Fort Lee, Virginia, NEVER

WAVE AT A WAC also boasts the presence of a genuine American hero, General Omar Bradley, who does a short bit as himself.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
