About Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

Opening April 13 on approximately 3,000 screens across the U.S. and Canada and coinciding with the year-long 100th commemoration of the United States’ role in the “War to End All Wars, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero tells the story of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman) whose life is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn.  Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste (Gérard Dépardieu), Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage.
