Product Details

On the eve of America's entry into World War II, Colonel Effingham (Charles Coburn) retires to his hometown of Fredricksville, Georgia, where his love for America leads him on a crusade to preserve the Confederate Monument Square. Mobilizing the town's upright citizens against the corrupt local government, the Colonel leads an unforgettable assault on City Hall. Colonel Effingham's Raid is a sly political fable that humorously explores wartime patriotism and "Old South" loyalty. Featuring a delightful lead performance by beloved character actor Charles Coburn and a dazzling supporting cast including Joan Bennett and William Eythe, Colonel Effingham's Raid is a wry time capsule of small town goings-on amidst a backdrop of rapidly changing times.
