Censored (film #18 on The Complete Uncensored Private SNAFU DVD (Image Entertainment, 1999). Also, film #7 on Disc 2 of Pearl Harbor: Before and After DVD (Triton Media, 2001)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

Snafu tries to write about the big surprise attack on Bingo Boingo Island to his girl Sally Lou, but his letters keep getting cut to ribbons by the censor. Technical Fairy First Class finally agrees to let an uncensored missive through and Snafu lives to regret it. This is a really great Snafu. I particularly like the series of elaborate contraptions the censor employs to prevent jerks like Snafu from sending out classified information. And it's one of the racier ones, too––Sally Lou is topless (though shown with artful camera angles)!

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
