Hail the Conquering Hero
Discharged from the Marines for a hay fever condition, Woodrow Lafayette Pershing Truesmith (Eddie Bracken) is too embarrassed to return home. Encouraged by some fellow soldiers to fabricate a story of being wounded in battle, Truesmith soon finds himself in over his head as he's treated to a hero's welcome. Written and directed by the great Preston Sturges, this comic satire also stars Ella Raines, Raymond Walburn and William Demarest.
