Description
In this wacky 1957 military spoof, coming soon after his Oscar-winning performance in Mister Roberts, Jack Lemmon plays an Army private named Hogan who wages his own war of wits as he tries to organize a big dance—the Mad Ball—at an off-limits hotel. At the same time, Hogan is wooing pretty nurse Betty Bixby (Kathryn Grant) while dodging gruff Captain Locke (Ernie Kovacs, in the first of several films he made with Lemmon). Mickey Rooney, Dick York, and James Darren all add to the hijinks in this black and white comedy, with a script adapted by Blake Edwards and Jed Harris from Arthur Carter's stage play.
