U.S., 1944
Written and directed by Preston Sturges
Starring Eddie Bracken, Ella Raines, William Demarest
Approx. 101 min. 35mm.


Hay-feverish 4-F Woodrow Truesmith (Eddie Bracken) is railroaded into returning to his small town as a war hero — and unwillingly thrust into a nightmare of cheering throngs, marching bands, political campaigns, and guilt-ridden mother love.

Reviews

“This riotously funny motion picture, this superlative small-town comedy, is also one of the wisest ever to burst from a big-time studio.”
The New York Times

“The dialogue keeps popping off like a string of firecrackers.”
– Pauline Kael
