Not exactly a Snafu film...
14 May 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Private Snafu films were clearly made to be seen by soldiers and not by the general public. The dirty jokes, sexual innuendos and language is relatively tame today but never would have been allowed in the regular theaters due to the Production Code. But, such off-color remarks went over very well with the enlisted men and helped to illustrate important information in a humorous and memorable fashion.

While IMDb lists this as one of these Snafu films, this really a misnomer. First, it's more of a humorous film about the awful duty in the Aleutians. Second, Snafu only appears for a few seconds in the film. While it it funny and worth seeing, it's not all that great and it's quite short---less than three minutes long.
