Name That War Film


Recommended Posts

Hmmp, I can honestly say I never heard of this one.



I saw this movie just before I joined the Coast Guard. My darkest fear was to be sent to a Buoy tender as a cook (hated cooking then). I was lucky, a third of my recruit company were sent to tenders. Lived in the same barracks that were used in the movie.

Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom?--Death, Hogfather/Terry Pratchett

My Nephew loves this Movie "What did you do in the war, Daddy"

Correct, a pretty funny movie, I just love the one scene where Dick Shawn's charactor, Captain Cash, wakes up drunk after the feast, and doesn't know where he really is, and in his skivies go's out from the bedroom, and shouts "All Right......Fall In" and promply trips and falls down the flight of stairs :lol: Harry Morgan, great as always, funny, I love the Italian Officer, Capitano Oppo's misunderstanding of his Morgan's charactor's name, Major Potter, and thus keeps calling him Major Potty :lol: alot of funny scenes.

Sometimes it takes a brick to fall on me to get things in. This thread has gotten out of hand. But this is a very fun thread. And it seemed like a thread that one would start and kind of stand back and watch the fun. I’m sure that we all bow in respect to our creator for starting this thread. But it is like a freight train and I don’t Think we can stop it.

That be: Patton.

Correct, the scene in Sicily where Patton cans a 3rd division Infantry Battalion Commander for his lack of forcing a river fast enough to suit Patton's objective timetable.
