''Wake Me When It's Over'' is a 1960 post-WWII comedy starring Dick Shawn and Ernie Kovacs. The movie follows what is cryptically called the "Brubaker Case", a U.S. military investigation which has gained national attention. The investigation centers around Gus Brubaker (Shawn), a draftee who had spent WWII in the European theater and was more than willing to leave the United States Air Force at the first possible moment. In an attempt to collect G.I. insurance, Gus accidentally re-enlists in the Air Force and is sent to Shima, a backwater island off the coast of Japan with a reputation for driving airmen insane with boredom. Gus fears slowly losing his own mind when the discovery of a nearby hot spring inspires him to build a hotel on Shima.
