Critics reviews

Gags and horrors in continuous and breathtaking sway, the only way to make sense of war: The priapic measuring tape snapping around Rogers, unspeakable things just behind a closed door at the concentration camp, Grant’s off-key sax, the luxurious hotel lobby as a flimsy façade for the rubble of Europe. The coda is a foul ideology literally thrown overboard, a sublime punchline rivaled only by Freleng’s Daffy–The Commando.
