1932 British comedy film.

Josser In The Army

Josser In The Army

Sunderland-born music hall star Ernie Lotinga was one of the most accomplished variety artists of the early 20th Century, proving massively popular throughout the 1930s with his comic creation 'Josser' - introduced to British audiences in a series of short films during the early part of the decade.

Owing to the scarcity of archive material, the fast-talking, charismatic performer admired by T.S. Eliot as 'the greatest living British histrionic artist' is now all but forgotten; however, this rare full-length feature, presented here in a brand-new digital transfer, easily demonstrates why Lotinga's sparky and often irreverent humour was cherished by a generation.

Charting the military escapades of serial bungler Tommy Josser, Josser In The Army sees the hapless hero in France during World War One, where he masquerades as a German general, unmasks a spy, gets captured and then makes a spectacular airborne escape... only to crash into the very house where his friends are lamenting his apparent demise!
