Propaganda? Yes. Some preposterous scenes? Yes. Entertaining? Very. Think "Hogan's Heros", with a Keystone Kops chase scene.

It is easy to imagine folks in theaters in 1942 cheering loudly as the GIs outwit the thick headed Germans in one escapade after another. Just when it appears they have escaped capture, they are surrounded by the enemy again, with no apparent chance to escape this time.

It is easy to find fault with many films, and this one is no exception. However, imperfect films can still be very entertaining if we allow them to be!

Not currently out on VHS or DVD - but look for it on Turner Classics.
