This is one of my favorite comedies and it has the advantage of being a light musical as well. It's not politically correct, so if you consider many contemporary issues 'don't touch' subject matter, this isn't the film for you. However, if you enjoy satire and plain silliness, you'll like this classic. Lancaster puts the "v" in versatility with his comedic performance, and Donald Pleasance's Oracle Jones, isn't far behind (one of those pleasant surprises, like John Lithgow). From Indian rallies and army bands in the brig to white petticoats and red longjohns, the misadventures of Colonel Thaddeous Gerhardt and Cora Templeton Massengale will leave you in stitches!
