Where the sun bakes all day and the Earth cooks all night
15 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Another entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Friz Freleng and focuses on the hazards of transporting supplies across the mountains and desert areas of the Middle East. The Devil (voiced by the Great Gildersleeve himself, Harold Peary) leaves his cushy seat in Hell to go to Iran because he's told how hot it is and refuses to believe it's anything more than propaganda. He discovers it's true as he watches a group of soldiers (including a surprisingly mature if still not entirely competent Snafu) work in the scorching heat to transport supplies across dangerous terrain. Fun stuff helped greatly by Peary's marvelous voice work.
