    TCM has Brother Rat on tonight at 10:30 (Eastern).

    It was filmed in 1938 at VMI and is based on a play written by two 1932 VMI grads.

    Oh, thank you for posting this. We ran downstairs and watched the first half hour--it was a school night. Love the Trans Atlantic accents and the timeless uniforms...and President Reagan as a young man. <3

    Watched it for the first time...the uniforms and barracks almost exactly the same as what my first class cadet is currently wearing and living in...79 years later! Got to love those VMI traditions. The best line: "We're gonna be in as much trouble as the Yankees at the battle of New Market!"
