Reveille with Beverly (1943) is an American film starring Ann Miller, Franklin Pangborn, and Larry Parks directed by Charles Barton, released by Columbia Pictures, based on the Reveille with Beverly radio show hosted by Jean Ruth Hay.[1] It is also the name of the subsequent soundtrack album.

The film featured a number of notable cameo appearances, from such important big band era musicians as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra, The Mills Brothers, Bob Crosby, Vernon Alley, Freddie Slack, and Ella Mae Morse.

In his narration for the 1977 documentary film Life Goes to War, Johnny Carson remarked that while he was stationed on Guam during World War II, he had "memorized the entire score - and most of the dialogue - of Reveille with Beverly".
