Three friends enlist at a military academy in the American South. While two of them pursue romantic entanglements, the third tries to keep quiet the fact he is secret married and his wife is expecting a child.



The film was a box-office failure. Bracken later said that "the main reason why audiences rejected About Face, I think, is that most of us were too damn old for the roles."[5]
