    Full of chuckles and outright laughs. This is b&w film I never knew about and strange it was released in 1941. When we think every male was patriotic at the time, not Bob Hope in this one. To the contrary, he plays a movie star who is all coward all the time. He regrets he has no health problems. "Don Bolton (played by Bob Hope) is a famous Hollywood star who tries to get married in order to avoid the draft, as he feels it will interfere with his career. He falls for Antoinette, a colonel's daughter (played by Dorothy Lamour) and in an attempt to impress her he pretends to enlist in the army, though it turns out that he has in fact enlisted for the real thing, along with his agent and assistant. Bolton is keen to impress both Antoinette and her father during training, however his skills as a soldier prove to be abysmal."--- Wikipedia [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/d/dc/Caught-in-the-Draft.jpg/220px-Caught-in-the-Draft.jpg[/img] SEE the whole film here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brOcsUHB9Mk Afraid of the impending draft movement by Congress, he aims to get a bride before the law is passed. Being married was a way to avoid serving in the impending war.

Oddly, Hope was feared unable to carry a film mostly by himself so the studio put in known names to support him.

    One of many Hope - Lamour teamings has Bob in a serviceman role. Something he was charitably familiar with.
