Yip Yip Yaphank is a World War I stage show produced by Jerry Jones that has an all soldier cast. He was a dancer but he suffered with a war wound . This Is The Army is the World War II stage show produced by his son Johnny (Ronald Reagan). It also had only soldiers. Both shows had the military singing and dancing and supporting their country. Johnny's girlfriend is troubled with him because he refuses marriage until the completion of the war. It's a great patriotic flag waving movie with Kate Smith singing that takes on a new meaning after the September 11 attacks.
According to the original soundtrack listing, "I Left My Heart At The Stage Door Canteen" was sung by Earl Oxford.
