Sunderland-born music hall star Ernest Lotinga was one of the most accomplished variety artists of the early 20th century, proving massively popular throughout the 1930s with his comic creation 'Josser' introduced to British audiences in a series of short films during the early part of the decade. Owing to the scarcity of archive material, the fast-talking, charismatic performer admired by T.S. Eliot as 'the greatest living British histrionic Artist' is now all but forgotten; however, this rare full-length feature, presented here in a brand-new digital transfer from original film elements, easily demonstrates why Lotinga's sparky and often irreverent humour was cherished by a generation. Charting the military escapades of serial bungler Tommy Josser, Josser in the Army sees the hapless hero in France during wartime, where he masquerades as a German general, unmasks a spy, gets captured and then makes a spectacular airborne escape!
