Goofs

The door to Von Vulture's bunker is visible at the beginning of the movie, hinged inwards to the left, and with a bright yellow pool of light illuminating the door and spilling out onto the area in front of the doorway. Schultz also opens the door before he comes in to respond to Von Vulture's calling him. Yet in the entire sequence of Von Vulture's stewingly pacing back and forth at the beginning of the film, there is no front door on Von Vulture's bunker; it's just a heavy-framed opening in the wall.

Taking Down Hitler
28 March 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Daffy The Commando (1943)

*** (out of 4)

The nutty Daffy Duck finds himself behind enemy lines and going up against a German idiot who doesn't seem to know who he's dealing with.

DAFFY THE COMMANDO is another World War II spoof that was meant to rally up people in the United States. These political shorts are always interesting to view today and this here is a good one. The majority of the running time has Daffy being pretty nutty as he's constantly getting the better of the German guy who is rather dumb. The film also has a cameo from Hitler who has a rather funny meeting with Daffy. This isn't a classic by any stretch of the imagination but there are enough laughs to keep it entertaining.
