Hollywood used to back the play the of the military. I am sure Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin and Bill Maher could fill in . . .the shoes of James Cagney, Pat O'Brien and Frank McHugh in a service picture that Breaks the Back of Don't Ask; Don't Tell!
To continue a grudge with naval officer Biff Martin, feisty construction worker Chesty O'Connor joins the navy and manages to get stationed on the same ship as Martin. Further complications arise when O'Connor starts dating Martin's sister, whom he meets while on shore leave. . . but really has eyes for Biff and Droopy.
Wilbur 'Droopy' H. Mullins: [Droopy waves, then blows a kiss to his buddy, Chesty, who's leaving the ship for a new post.]Original 1934 Dialogue with a 2010 theme! Fabulous!
CPO Biff Martin: [Backs away from Droopy] What are you two guys, a couplea violets?
Wilbur 'Droopy' H. Mullins: Aw, mind your own business.
[Blows Chesty O'Connor another kiss]
