The Russian Princess . . . U.S. Grant . . . & Siberian Rats

We are deep into World War I, and there are two American soldiers with a machine gun helping to defend the Russian town of Skzavoskanoff. Reinforcements have been promised, but never seen, and these two fellows are on their own. When a meek little salesman from Iowa arrives (actor Donald Meek to be exact), he becomes the third ‘legionnaire’ in our war comedy. As our story opens The Great War has ended and peace covers the earth . . . . But no one got the word in remote Skzavoskanoff and our boys are still defending the town against all strangers. Sergeant Chuck Connors, played by Robert Armstrong, and Private Jimmy Barton, played by Lyle Talbot, are soon joined by a beautiful Russian girl who claims to be a Princess who escaped from an enemy prison camp. I am not an expert on the Russian politics of this era, but I believe that in addition to fighting in World War One with the rest of the world, the Russian Cossacks and Russian Bolshevik rebels were fighting each other, and the princess was captured by the other side and has just managed to escape and enlist the aid of our three legionnaires. In addition to the two American soldiers and the rat salesman from Iowa, the town is being protected by Russian General Ivan Stavinski . . . . But escaped Princess Sonia tells the American soldiers that she recognizes the man as a rebel who killed the real Stavinski. . . . . Now, before you start feeling the angst of war and life and death . . . . . You gotta know that this is really a comedy . . . . The war is only a backdrop for comedy . . . . Kinda like the old American sit-com ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ with Bob Crane and Werner Klemperer . . . . So the details don’t really matter a lot . . . . You only need to know that there will be more fun than fury . . . . . More comedy than crime . . . . On the way to the proverbial happy ending. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
