Okay, it's not the best film, nor the funniest, nor the one with the most drama or action. It is however, a good film. In it, William Haines is trying to use the Marines to pay for his trip to the 'Tia Juana' (Tijuana) horse races. Howver, Sergeant O'Hara, played by Lon Chaney, manages to get him to enlist. For four years they go though many adventures, and along the way Haines' character even falls in love with the same nurse (played by Eleanor Boardman) that O'Hara is in attracted to. Okay, some of the dialogue is a little dated, and the acting occasionally goes over the top. However, some of the words seem like they were written today, and I could feel the emotions the actors tried to display. I kept laughing and commenting all the way through the movie like the good comedies today sometimes do. It's a good film, even though not the best.
