Rookies is a 1927 comedy film, released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer starring Karl Dane and George K. Arthur.[1]

Set in World War I, an entertainer named Greg Lee, played by George K. Arthur gets drafted as a private and gets pitted against a tough Drill Seargeant Diggs, played by Karl Dane. Private Lee does everything he can to annoy Sergeant Diggs thinking it will get him thrown out of the Army. Both men have their sights set on the pretty Betty Wayne played by Marceline Day and the two men find themselves set adrift in a reconnaissance balloon. Because of the popularity of this film this would be the first of several collaborations between the two actors. [2]
