Wartime comedy about impersonation, military intelligence operations, assassination attempts, and espionage, with Kaye in a double role. Meek Private Ernie Williams, stationed in England in 1944, entertains the other soldiers with his impersonations of Churchill and Hitler. When caught impersonating high-profile British officer (and his physical double), General Sir Lawrence Mackenzie-Smith, Williams is forced into continuing the charade by Allied military intelligence personnel, Colonel Somerset and American Col. Rock Houston. Unbeknownst to Williams, these agents set him up in "Operation Dead Pigeon" to confuse Nazi spies attempting to assassinate Mackenzie-Smith, the major campaign strategist for the upcoming Allied invasion of Europe. With the help of Lady Margaret, Williams succeeds in his impersonation of Mackenzie-Smith, survives several attempts on his life, escapes from Berlin after being kidnapped by Nazi spies (including Mackenzie-Smith's mistress), and exposes the British ringleader of the spies. Musical highlights include a Scottish sword dance and Highland Fling at a gathering of the general's old regiment, the Mackenzie Hielanders; Kaye hiding amongst polka fan dancers; and Kaye's impersonation of a Marlene Dietrich-type singer, Fraulein Lili, in a Berlin nightclub
