Description by OLDIES.com:
Millionaire Brendan Byers may be 4-F but feels it's "every man's right to be killed fighting for his country." So he puts his money where his mouth is. Unable to be in Uncle Sam's army, he does the next best thing: buy one. Once his men are trained on the finest golf courses, plunged into sea survival courses in posh swimming pools and taught the art of killing with Camembert cheese, Brendan leads them to war. One question remains: Which Way to the Front?
Comedy legend Jerry Lewis stars as Brendan, puncturing war's lunacy by being even loonier. He's heavily armed with his trademark physical buffoonery, dizzying pace and solid support from comedy pros like Jan Murray, Steve Franken and the incomparable Kaye Ballard. Which way to uncontrollable laughter? This way, of course.
After being rejected by the army, a moronic millionaire forms his own platoon with which to attack Hitler's forces.
