Canova is a high wire circus performer who wants to be closer to Colonna, her soldier boy friend. She's chased by gangsters, which is all the excuse she needs to don men's garb and join the armed forces. From there the comedy is entirely predictable with all the jokes hinging on when her

ruse will be discovered. At the end, the camp puts on a show, and the gangsters finally catch up with Canova, but fortunately the cops arrive in the nick of time. Despite the obvious handling of the idea, this is a smooth presentation that generates a few laughs, and Canova gives it her best.

Songs include: "In the Army," "Need I Speak," "Jitterbug's Lullaby," "Spangles on My Tights," "Wacky for Khaki" (Frank Loesser, Harold Spina), "Swing in Line" (Loesser, Joseph J. Lilley), "Love in Bloom" (Ralph Rainger, Leo Robin), and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" (Dorothy Fields, Jimmy

McHugh).

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
