In New York City's Harlem circa 1987, an overweight, abused, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child is invited to enroll in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction.
Based on the famed W.W.II cartoons: Lowbrow G.I.s Willie and Joe, on the Italian front, are good soldiers in combat, but meet the antics of gung-ho Captain Johnson and other military snafus with a barrage of wry comments. On a 3-day pass in Naples, Joe's penchant for wine and women involves the pair with luscious Emi Rosso and her moonshiner father, whose tangled affairs land them in ever deeper trouble. Written by

To me the movie Up Front was one of the three best movies ever filmed. It is the only true movie I have seen about a real combat soldier and what they have to endure. It is too bad this movie is not recorded for sale on a DVD or VHS so our children and adults can see what a Real Soldier is and not some Hollywood Actor like we see portrayed in all the other War movies I have seen. Please record this movie so we can enjoy it once again. I have looked for a copy of it for 50 years or more and would pay dearly for one. I served 22 years in the United States Air Force and am 100% disabled because of this service. I do have the book but the movie is better. Any information concerning if and where I could purchase a copy of this movie would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help and information. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF America AND THE WHOLE WORLD. I have tried several times to get the word America in capital letters but do not seem to be able to. If you post this please be sure the word America is in capitals.
