Film – Hail the Conquering Hero

Thursday, June 15, 2023

“Hail the Conquering Hero” is a part of our “Focus on Director Preston Sturges” movie series and his smart, sharp comedies.

Too embarrassed to admit to his family and friends that he was discharged from World War II because of hay fever, Woodrow Lafayette Pershing Truesmith (Eddie Bracken) is befriended by a group of sympathetic soldiers who soon have everyone in his small town convinced he is a real war hero. Preston Sturges leaves no sacred cow unskewered in this uproarious send-up of wartime America’s patriotic fervor.

1944. Run time: 1 hour 41 minutes.
