DIRECTOR: BLAKE EDWARDS

CAST: JAMES COBURN, DICK SHAWN, SERGIO FANTONI

Martial heroics become the stuff of farce in Edwards’s World War II jape, written by The Exorcist author William Peter Blatty, in which an outfit of U.S. soldiers led by Dick Shawn and James Coburn roll into the Sicilian village of Valerno—built from scratch in California by production designer Fernando Carrere—and find the locals all too ready to be conquered, so long as they can continue preparations for their wine festival.
