Synopsis:
After Judy Benjamin's husband dies on their wedding night, the ditzy Jewish American Princess decides to enlist in the army. Of course, she's been misled by an unscrupulous recruiter, and expects a tropical vacation and other niceties. Benjamin instantly receives a reality check during basic training, conducted by the snarling Capt. Doreen Lewis, who revels in cutting the spoiled snob down to size. But as Private Benjamin endures the rigors of the military, she gradually becomes transformed into a disciplined soldier -- and woman.

Notes:
Additional Credits: Joan Eisenberg (unit publicist).
