A love song both to the Hollywood "it takes one of every kind" platoon flicks as well as the lyricism of 1940s Broadway. It tells the story of Stu (a war reporter) and Mitch (a private) who fall in love in Basic Training and then meet again when Stu is on assignment reporting on Mitch's outfit. In addition to being suffused with songs (swing, big band, boogie-woogie) it explores what stories get told in wartime, what gets remembered, and how WII became the great catalyst in bringing gay men and women together.
