Behind the Front (1926)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Unwittingly bamboozled into enlisting in the army as WWI erupts, a petty thief and his cop pursuer contend with each other and an obnoxious sergeant. The briefly big-time comedy teaming of Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton resulted in several pictures, including this prototype of virtually all subsequent war comedies.
