The Film Daily – April 30, 1942
The usual Disney standard is maintained in Donald Duck’s latest experience.
The opening sequence shows him looking at a series of excellent posters concerning Army life [during World War II] as he is on his way to the draft board.
Becoming very ebullient about the whole idea, Donald Duck rushes in for his physical and goes through the usual grief and tribulation a selectee is faced with.
Disney has whipped up some hilarious situations. This is in Technicolor.
