During WWII, Hollywood made tons of "variety show" movies for war morale and to entertain the soldiers. We've Never Been Licked was a film dedicated to one particular school, Texas A & M, that produced thousands of marines. The film used authentic extras and was partially filmed on location, and the opening dedication was very moving: "This motion picture is dedicated to the thousands of Texas A.& M. college students who participated in the making of this picture and who are now serving their country on many battlefronts all over the world."
But onto the story: Richard Quine plays a new cadet at A & M. He quickly bonds with his roommate, Noah Beery, Jr., clashes with upperclassman Robert Mitchum, and falls in love with Anne Gwynne, Professor Harry Davenport's daughter. There's more to the school than meets the eye, though. It seems that every cadet is in love with Anne, and Bob continually comes up with little tricks and hazes to get under Dick's skin.
This isn't a movie you'll watch for the acting or the battle scenes; this is a movie you'll watch if you're attached to the campus, or if you're really dedicated to watching lots of morale flicks. Non-Aggies might get a little tired of the school spirit, but if you remind yourself of the words in the beginning, you'll understand why Hollywood made this movie.
