Biloxi Blues is a adaptation of the hit Broadway play by Neil Simon about a young man coming of age during basic training for World War 2. Twenty year old Eugene Morris Jerome gets drafted and sent to boot camp in Biloxi, Mississippi. A Brooklyn native, Eugene has never experienced the Deep South but he is determined to survive camp, and more importantly lose his virginity. He quickly comes into conflict with the manic Drill Sergeant Toomey and most live with an odd assortment of characters in the bunk house. Military training becomes an endless ordeal of marching exercises and horrible food. Luckily, there's a fellow New York Jew in the troop, Arnold B. Epstein and a friendly prostitute, Rowena in the nearby town. Then, Eugene meets lovely Daisy, a lovely southern belle that captures his heart.
