“Salute the brave men and women serving in the military with this patriotic comedy. There won’t be a dry eye in the house after the stirring song ’Together We Must Stand’ and a tribute to all branches of the military. Still, Kilroy is a comedy and the setting is a USO Club (’The Serviceman’s ’Home Away From Home’’) in 1942 Brooklyn. Ships leaving the nearby Navy yard are being sunk by enemy U-boats. Allied Intelligence suspects the USO club is unknowingly harboring Axis spies. Enter Private Joe Kilroy, a young soldier who draws a curious cartoon face everywhere he goes (and is this causing trouble!). He’s the only one who knows where the next Allied convoy will converge. Enemy agents will stop at nothing to learn his secret. The action builds to an exciting finale during a wild radio broadcast. The score includes such hits as ’Don’t Say No To The U.S.O.,’ ’Slap That Jukebox,’ ’Jitterbug Saturday Night,’ and ’Rat-a-tat-tat That Rivet,’ performed with classic Andrews Sisters-style harmony.”
