The Late, Late Movie: Never Wave at a WAC (1953) Rosalind Russell


Jo McBain, a divorced socialite and daughter of Senator Tom Roberts, asks her father to get her an officer’s commission in the WACs, so she can be in Paris with her boy friend, Lt. Colonel ‘Sky” Fairchild. But her father decides the WAC training won’t hurt her and she ends up in Fort Lee, Virginia, along with an ex-burlesque queen, ‘”Danger” McDowd, now know as Clara. She is forced to go through basic training. Her ex-husband, Andrew McBain, shows up at Fort Lee on business and Fairchild returns there from Paris. McBain wants her back and Fairchild just wants her.
