George Sidney and Charlie Murray are "Cohen and Kelly" in everything but name in this wartime farce. Shipped to Russia during the 1919 civil war between the Bolsheviks and the Royalists, American soldiers Krauss (Sidney) and Muldoon (Murray) waste no time commiserating with the local female population. Trying to sneak back to their own lines, our heroes disguise themselves as peasant girls, leading to a hilarious tete-a-tete with a pair of amorous Russian officers. Several other "Charley's Aunt" complications are in store for Krauss and Muldoon before they attempt to end the war with a bomb-detonation device of Krauss' invention. Lost at the Front was directed by Del Lord, future helmsman of dozens of Three Stooges comedies.
