Keep Your Powder Dry

Available on Hulu
During World War II WAC, or the Woman’s Army Corps, takes on three recruits: Leigh (Laraine Day) joins to continue her family’s proud tradition of military service, Ann (Susan Peters) enlists while her husband is overseas fighting the war and Valerie (Lana Turner) a spoiled party girl joins as a ruse to prove she’s mature and responsible in an effort to get an inheritance. In basic training, Leigh and Val immediately square off with meek Ann playing peacemaker, but gradually the women form a bond, one they take with them to Officer Candidate School. Under the command of Lt. Col. Spottiswoode (Agnes Moorehead) the women train to be officers, but old rivalries and revelations about Val’s true intentions put their friendship and their careers at risk.
