Republican President Trump has our economy taking off, he is

bringing peace through strength to the world, securing our
borders, bringing back jobs to the U.S., safeguarding our

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1951’s “At War With The Army”
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this
Friday and Saturday night (June 1 & 2) for our “LRPA After Dark”
presentation of 1951’s musical comedy “At War With the Army,”
starring the classic comedy team of Dean Martin and Jerry
Sergeant Victor Puccinelli and Private First Class Alvin Korwin
serve in the U.S. Army during WWII. Before enlisting, they were
best friends and partners in a nightclub song-and-dance act.
Since enlisting and serving on the same base, they tend to get
on each other’s nerves. Puccinelli (Martin), a suave ladies’
man, is good at his boring, paper-pushing desk job, but dreams
of being transferred to active duty overseas. His CO has no
intentions of letting him leave, intending instead to commission
him as the company’s Warrant Officer. Korwin (Lewis) is a
lovable goofball who works in the mess hall but can’t do
anything right. Everything he touches turns to disaster. He’s on
K.P. duty as a result of his incompetence. Korwin begs for a
weekend pass visit his wife, but can’t seem to catch a break.
Things are further complicated by Puccinelli’s love life, which
is in a constant whirlwind, plus the fact that Korwin wants his
old partner to record a song they have co-written and rehearse
for a USO show, much to Puccinelli’s chagrin. Will Puccinelli
get to see active duty? Will Korwin get to see his wife back
home? Most importantly, will the guys get together and put on
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis made 16 movies together over the
span of their careers. “At War With the Army” was their third
movie, but their first starring vehicle. Their roles in this
film, as in all of their movies, follow typecasting: Martin as
the handsome Romeo, Lewis as the luckless jokester. “At War With
the Army” has everything that you’d expect from a Martin and
Lewis movie: loads of wonderful slapstick moments, as well as
songs, shtick, crazy mix-ups and zany antics, and even a spoof
of Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald in “Going My Way.” This was
vintage Martin and Lewis, before egos and jealousy got in the
way. If it sounds like fun, then grab your popcorn and meet us
after dark for this wacky sendup of Army bureaucracy.
