Private Snuffy Smith (Enhanced) 1942

Snuffy smith is tired of outrunning revenuers in order to save his illegal still. His cousin Don tells him to enlist in the Army, which will provide him with all he needs. Snuffy finally makes it in the Army and finds that his commanding officer, Sergeant Cooper, is the same revenue agent that has been harassing him. When Don s new invention, an improved range finder, is stolen by spies, it is up to Snuffy to work with Cooper to set everything straight.

Private Snuffy Smith is a 1940s war spoof film. It stars Bud Duncan in the lead as Snuffy smith. Edgar Kennedy plays Sergeant Cooper, Snuffy s commanding officer and revenue agent. Sarah Padden is Snuffy s wife, Lowizie.

The best thing about Eddie Cline's comedic misfire, PRIVATE SNUFFY SMITH is three Jimmie Dodd songs. The youthful future Head Mouseketeer demonstrates guitar mastery as he sings most pleasantly. "Time's a-Wastin'" was penned by vaudevillians Olsen & Johnson. Lyrics to "The Yard Bird" incorporate Snuffy Smithisms and references, while "I Don't Know What To Do Blues" is quite nice.

Cline was steeped in directing comedies, all the way back to silent era collaborations with Buster Keaton, and the actors involved were also skilled, so fault for an unhumorous script may lie in its creation by a committee of four.

The cinematic career of star Bud Duncan, who stood well-under 5 feet, began and ended in the funny pages. From 1911 on, he was Jeff in a series of silent Mutt & Jeff shorts; Duncan's last movies were two early-40s Snuffy Smith programmers. This one is totally undistinguished, dumb in fact.

Gray market discs such as this offer no commentary, deleted scenes or other bonus features. Dubs are "best available source" and can vary from very good to only fair.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
