False Field-Marshal is the English-language title of this German military comedy. Vlasta Burian stars as Buschceck, a former WWI soldier who dreams of returning to uniform. He gets his wish when circumstances oblige him to impersonate a missing field marshal. Our hero has a high old time issuing orders until the genuine field marshal (who fortunately has a good sense of humor) finally shows up. Based on a play by A. Longens, the basic premise of Falscher Feldmarschall resurfaced 26 years later in the MGM war-time comedy Imitation General.
