Private Snuffy Smith
Billy DeBeck's classic comic strip "Barney Google and Snuffy Smith" was brought to the screen in the pig-bladder Monogram service comedy Private Snuffy Smith. Diminutive silent-screen funster Bud Duncan stars as hillbilly Snuffy Smith, while Sarah Padden is seen as his giant-economy-sized wife Loweezy. Upon arriving in boot camp, draftee Snuffy immediately runs afoul of irascible sergeant Cooper, played with the fury of a mad dog by Edgar Kennedy. After stumbling and bumbling his way through basic training, Snuffy redeems himself by exposing a gang of Fifth Columnists. About as subtle as a kick in the head, Private Snuffy Smith can be quite funny if one is in the proper frame of mind, though the film isn't quite as memorable as its sequel, the gloriously yclept Hillbilly Blitzkrieg. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
