One of the best films about America and it's love of heroes ever made...

Has there ever been a filmmaker who simultaneously loved people and saw them for the goofballs they could be as well as Preston Sturges? Sharper than Capra, but the humanist that Wilder could never be, Sturges in the 7 or so classics he made held a mirror to both the greatness and the foolishness of humanity.

Watch "Hail The Conquering Hero" this Memorial Day weekend. You'll be glad you did.
