Screwball comedy legend Preston Sturges' sharply satirical directorial debut follows the political career of Dan McGinty, a hobo picked off the streets by some political fixers to become an illegal professional voter, being paid to put his X in the box in different wards under assumed names. After voting 37 times in one election, he impresses the bent politicos' boss who launches the rascal on a political career of his own. McGinty makes mayor and it soon look likes the former down-and-out might actually become governor, but things don't quite go according to plan.
Regarded as one of Preston Sturges's best films, Hail the Conquering Hero is a sharp satirical stab at hero worship and small-town politics.
