Manufacturer Description

Academy Award-winning writer and director Preston Sturges (Sullivan’s Travels) delivers a hilarious satire on the American penchant for hero worship in Hail the Conquering Hero. Born on the day his father died a hero in WWI, Woodrow Truesmith (Eddie Bracken) enlists proudly when WWII begins. Although anxious to serve his country, Woodrow is quickly discharged because of his chronic hay fever. Ashamed to return, the “conquering hero” manages to dupe his girlfriend, friends and entire hometown by having his buddies forward his letters from the “Pacific.” Nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Academy Award, this quick-witted comedy classic showcases the talents of Preston Sturges at his best.
