"What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?"
Hot & Cold War Comedy! week begins at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing Blake Edwards' "What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?," one of the director's "most underrated pictures."

James Coburn, in one of his first starring roles, adopts many of producer-director Blake Edwards' personal mannerisms as a Bilko-like lieutenant trying to trick a Sicilian town into surrendering during WW II. Intended as the first of a planned six coproductions between The Mirisch Company and Edwards, this one (based on a question his son once asked him) and The Party were the only ones completed. Largely forgotten today, it's one of Edwards' most underrated pictures.
