"Pig Foot Pete", performed by Martha Raye in the film, was a 1942 Academy Award nominee for Best Song. However, on the ballots the song was attributed to Hellzapoppin' (1941), though it never appeared in that film. The Academy has no record of how the error occurred. See more »

Abbott & Costello plays Blackie Benson & Heathcliff, two bumbling assistants to recently fired Air Show stunt pilot Jinx Roberts(played by Dick Foran). With nowhere else to go, they enlist in the Air Force sometime before WWII, where they proceed to turn it upside down with their wild antics. Martha Raye plays twins who cause confusion for the team when they are in a diner, and they are waitresses, then later when they go on a double date in the fun-house. Can they survive their training, and will the Air Force survive them? Funny comedy with good gags and tolerable songs. Does for the Air Force what "Buck Privates" did for the army; too bad about the navy though...
