(NBC, 12/18/1977, 120 mins). An old-fashioned service comedy the kind Bob Hope used to make in the 1940s telling of the misadventures of an Italian POW who is drafted into the American army during World War II. Made in 1969, it was produced and directed by Bob Hope’s son-in-law, with Italian actor Enzo Cerusico, remembered by TV trivia buffs as the onetime star of the series “My Friend Tony” (1969), in the lead. This film premiered not in TV’s primetime but on NBC’s late night network movie on a quiet Sunday.
