Naive but amiable Louisiana hillbilly Will Stockdale is inducted into the US Air Force, after some initial confusion regarding the draft notices. It is in Basic Instructor Sgt. Orville C. King's best interest that this boy make it through boot camp, but Will does not make that task easy. Memorable slapstick with an excellent comic cast. Briefly adapted into a television sitcom.
