Watch Hail the Conquering Hero
- 1 hr 41 min
This motion picture is an hysterical comedy about a man who enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps, only to be rejected for hay fever before he ever sees action in World War II. While having a drink at a bar, afraid to go home and tell his mother he is a failure, a group of Marines meets him and decide to fabricate a story of how he saw battle and saved lives. He returns home reluctantly and gets a hero's welcome, and is nominated for mayor of the city. The chaos and mix ups that follow lead to more comedy.
