Movie Info

As the United States enters World War I in 1917, newly married actor Jerry Jones (George Murphy) puts on an all-infantry musical to raise his fellow soldiers' morale. At the dawn of World War II, as his own son, Johnny (Ronald Reagan), ponders whether to marry his sweetheart, Eileen (Joan Leslie), Jerry and his old Army buddies -- including Eileen's father, Eddie Dibble (Charles Butterworth) -- decide to put on a new show for the boys marching off to battle just as they did years ago.

Audience Reviews for This Is the Army

  • Jul 15, 2019
    Made during WW2 this is an interesting example of the media as a propaganda device and another Irving Berlin "rah-rah-the-U.S.A.!" conceit. "Remember WW1? Well, we got through that one and so we'll get through this one the very same way...SINGING!" The assorted parties line up on either side of the stage for their entrance in this staged Main Street America parade, do their bit, and promptly exit stage. It's a real barn-burner. Ho-hum. The obvious in-your-face hard sell and forced optimism dates the work and gives the piece the unpleasant aftertaste of hucksterism.

    This Film has President Ronald Reagan in it, a very talented guy. Its a little while before he appears. Its made during WWII so its not as dramatic as most movies of Combat during that Era. Still with President Reagan in it deserves 3 1/2 stars.
