Josser in the Army Film Poster


Norman Lee directs this 1930s British comedy starring popular music hall performer Ernest Lotinga. Born in Sunderland, Lotinga made a name for himself as one of the foremost farcical performers of the day and began exploring the character of Tommy Josser, a distinctly unheroic Englishman, on stage and in a series of short films. This feature-length adventure finds Tommy serving in France during the war, where he ends up impersonating a German general and gets himself into all sorts of trouble. Arnold Bell, Hal Gordon and Jack Hobbs also star.
