Hail the Conquering Hero

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan Jul 29, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw #HailtheConqueringHero. It’s gotta be Sturges’ masterpiece, don’t you think? Unless that honour goes to The Lady Eve …

… Or maybe The Palm Beach Story, what with the weenie king and all. But then there’s The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek (q.v.) …

… How can you not pick that one? Except that Christmas in July, in all its brevity, is so perfect. And we too easily dismiss The Great McGinty

(P.S., on #HailtheConqueringHero. Millions of bright people disagree, but I’m not the biggest fan of Sullivan’s Travels 

… [And yet, it does, also, feature the sublime “Ants in Your Pants of 1939” …])
