At War With The Army (1950) was a Comedy - Musical Film directed by Hal Walker and produced by Fred F. Finklehoffe.

Highlights include a sequence involving a noncooperative soda machine, Jerry Lewis performing "The Navy Gets the Gravy But the Army Gets the Beans," and the team's impersonation of the Bing Crosby - Barry Fitzgerald characters from the classic film Going My Way.
