The last German soldier from the observation post, that fires on "Gen. Savage". Is firing an M-1 Garand. German soldiers carried the Karabiner 98k, which was a bolt action rifle. It wouldn't be likely that a German soldier would pick up an American rifle. Ammunition would be a serious problem. See more »
Imitation General is an absolutely hilarious tale set during World War II. Glenn Ford's portrayal as a Army sergeant who impersonates an officer is well worth seeing. Supporting roles played by Red Buttons, Dean Jones and Tige Andrews add to the mayhem. This is classic comedy from the late 1950's and should be released to video for the next generation to enjoy.
