The Cock-Eyed World. 1929. USA. Directed by Raoul Walsh. With Victor McLaglen, Edmund Lowe, Lili Damita. 117 min.
Marine sergeants Quirt and Flagg continue their rowdy bromance in this first of Walsh’s three sequels to his hugely successful What Price Glory? The episodic action takes the battling buddies from Russian to Brooklyn to a Caribbean banana republic, as the double entendres (famously, “Bring me the lay of the land!”) continue to fly over the heads of the censors and a good time is had by all. 35mm print from MoMA’s archive
