Alexander Hall – Up Front (1951)

Based on the famed W.W.II cartoons: Lowbrow G.I.s Willie and Joe, on the Italian front, are good soldiers in combat, but meet the antics of gung-ho Captain Johnson and other military snafus with a barrage of wry comments. On a 3-day pass in Naples, Joe’s penchant for wine and women involves the pair with luscious Emi Rosso and her moonshiner father, whose tangled affairs land them in ever deeper trouble.

World War II is in full swing, and American soldiers Joe (David Wayne) and Willie (Tom Ewell) are fighting on the Italian front. Though they’re solid soldiers, their lighthearted demeanor and sarcastic disposition frequently get them in trouble with the stern Capt. Johnson (Jeffrey Lynn). In Naples, Joe becomes involved with Emi (Marina Berti), a beautiful Italian woman who helps the boys dodge the military police and eventually assists in recovering the soldiers’ failing supply lines.
