Universal Pictures released Buck Privates to theaters on January 31, 1941. Arthur Lubin directed the film which starred Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, and Lee Bowman.
‘Buck Privates’ Movie Summary
Abbott and Costello play Slicker Smith and Herbie Brown, the two lead/non-lead characters of Buck Privates. Slicker and Herbie are conmen who sell neckties out of a suitcase, which is apparently illegal in New York in the 1940’s. While trying to get away from a cop, they duck into a movie theater and inadvertently sign up for the army.
At the same time, spoiled playboy Randolph Parker, played by Lee Bowman, arrives at the recruitment center looking to get out of his draft obligation. But his wealth and influential father don’t get him out of his patriotic duty. Conveniently, Randolph’s valet, Bob Martin, played by Alan Curtis, has also been drafted as well. Unfortunately for Randolph, Bob hates him and has little respect for the wealthy tomcat. Bob and Randolph soon begin competing before they even get to boot camp when they meet the beautiful camp hostess Judy Gray, played Jane Frazee.
Once at boot camp, Slicker and Herbie are dismayed to learn that the cop who chased them while they sold the contraband ties is now their drill instructor. He is constantly coming down hard on the two conmen, but he especially has it in for Herbie, who finds himself doing KP on more than one occasion.
