Movie Info

Having mistakenly enlisted in the army during World War I, a rich young lad who's never had to lift a finger finds himself a fumble-footed soldier headed for the front. This disappointing Buster Keaton talkie, partially derived from his actual war experiences, can't hold a candle to his comic silent masterpieces.

... (Keaton) brings his brand of comic chaos to the front lines of France and manages to turn bad luck into a happy ending in the trench warfare of World War I.

Buster Keaton's second talkie for MGM is a stinker.
