It is a bewilderingly skillful picture, and the skill is used no more brilliantly to tell the story than to cover up the story's weaknesses and those of its author, Preston Sturges. Full Review
Wonderful satire on small-town jingoism, all the more remarkable in that it was made during World War II.

...[A] masterpiece, which deftly mixes Capra sentiment with Sturges' bumpkin satire...
Rating: A -- Sturges turns upside down the conventions of Hollywood's small-town film: His characters' eccentricity is meant to show the more multifarious and resourceful nature of folks who appear to be bland and ordinary. Full Review
In Preston Sturges's ironic comedy HAIL THE CONQUERING HERO, a soldier who is discharged from the army for hay fever is welcomed home as a brave war hero.
