Ian Carmichael is feckless British Soldier Stanley Windrush. Windrush abandons his college education to serve his country, but after flunking out of officer's candidate school he is demoted to private. Hilarity ensues as he befriends rough-hewn fellow private Cox (Richard Attenborough). Major Hitchcock (Terry-Thomas) offers a brilliant parody of the 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen' school of military service, while Dennis Price is equally amusing as a nonplussed commanding officer.
