Movie Info

Wally Brown and Alan Carney, RKO's prefab "answer" to Universal's Abbott and Costello, made their joint starring debut in Adventures of a Rookie. The boys play a couple of GIs on leave, who attend a party at a girls' boarding house. The fun begins when the house is quarantined during a scarlet fever epidemic, forcing our heroes to stay with their lovely hostesses indefinitely. Typical of the humor level is the following exchange: "My stomach's too fat." "Why don't you diet?" "But I like it this color." Primitive though it may have been, Adventures of a Rookie posted a $198,000 profit for RKO, leading to a three-year series of low-budget, lowbrow Brown & Carney vehicles.
