Description
"Hail has no screen peer as a satire of patriotic hysteria" writes the Boston Globe in its celebration of the inimitable oeuvre of director Preston Sturges. "Watching him at his peak is like hearing swing splinter into bop, as the sweet high spirits of screwball enter a realm of nearly inebriate abandon." Sturges was the first Hollywood screenwriter to direct his own scripts when the talkies arrived, forging a path for John Huston, Billy Wilder, and many others. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay, this 1944 farce stars Eddie Bracken as an abashed serviceman discharged because of hay fever; when a group of Marines hear his tale of woe, they decide to bring him home with a hero's welcomeŚwith hilarious consequences.
