Movie Info

This kooky British comedy chronicles the zany exploits of the Song and Dance Unit, Southeast Asia. The group entertains troops stationed in the Malayan jungle during WWII. The entertainers are led by the rigid Major Giles Flack. Much to Flack's discomfiture, most of his unit enjoys dressing up in drag.
