Storyline

The Japanese are bombing LaCava and they damage the runway. Boyington then asks Lard if he can get some SesBees to repair the runway. Lard tells him if he can find one, he'll authorize it. He does. When he goes to see the man in charge, he says he has too much to do. But when Boyington tells him that a USO show will be visiting the island, he agrees. It seems that while he was at Lard's office, he heard of a USO show coming so he has Casey find out if they can come to the island. But when he calls he is told they are not coming. So Boyington has to get some of people to pose as a USO troupe to appease the SeaBees. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

The title is based on the well-known phrase in show business, meaning that regardless of what happens, even if the star can't go on, the show must still be put on for the waiting patrons. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning, when the Japanese are attacking Vella La Cava, every shot on the ground of people running around and shooting at the Japanese planes, shows gray skies and rain with people dodging mud holes as well as bullets, but every shot of the planes shows blue skies and sunshine.
