Pack Up Your Troubles
Misfit army rookies survive The Great War, then try to reunite their deceased army buddy’s daughter with her family. However, since his name was “Smith, ” this is not easy. There were many variances from the shooting script, and key scenes were re-shot with different supporting players. Nevertheless, their second fast-paced full-length film brims with great gags, inside jokes and some heart tugs. Co-directed by Ray McCarey, but mostly by George Marshall, who played the tough army cook when the actor cast failed to show up! With Donald Dillaway, James Finlayson, Billy Gilbert, meanie Charles Middleton and scene-stealer Jacquie Lyn.
