Due marines e un generale (translated: Two Marines and a General, internationally released as War Italian Style) is a 1966 Italian comedy film directed by Luigi Scattini. The film puts together the famous Italian comedian duo of Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia and the silent cinema icon Buster Keaton.

The Keaton role is a mute role, except for the words "Thank you" that he pronounces in the final scene of the film.[1][2]


Two US Marines who are so incompetent that they are sent to the European Theatre of Operations end up in the Battle of Anzio where they face the German's giant artillery piece "Anzio Annie".
