Soldier in the Rain Reviews

Soldier in the Rain (1963)

This is a nice little army comedy with Jackie Gleason and Steve McQueen. It also stars many other great TV actors of the time.

Master Sergeant Maxwell Slaughter (Gleason) is basically running the base from his air-conditioned office with the help of Supply Sergeant Eustis Clay (McQueen). Maxwell is the cool, smart one (cooler than Steve McQueen!) and the mentor of the pair and tends to calm Eustis's many crazy, hair-brained schemes to make money when they get out of the Army.

Maxwell is dreaming of a far away island that he visited during the war, other than that, he's fine with being a lifer.

Bobby Jo Pepperdine (Tuesday Weld) is the perfect sex kitten for Maxwell, and lovely Frances McCoy (Chris Noel) is hot, paired with Eustis. The base MPs are on Eustis every chance they get.

This movie has a lot of sentimental value to me and my family. lt's some good old fashioned light hearted comedy. lt's also one of the only movies l can think of where Steve McQueen doesn't play a serious role.

They don't call Mr. Gleason the "Great One" for nothing. A true sleeper movie with great character portrayals

Jackie Gleason was never appreciated as much as he deserved as an actor. Steve McQueen was of course a top performer and was well acknowledged as such. This is a terrific movie that shouldn't be missed Until that time Eustis...Until that time

Stupid and hilarious at the same time with some surprisingly dramatic moments. Through its two main co-stars gained timeless sentimental value.

Jackie Gleason demonstrates his genius for both comedy and drama in this little known film made in the late 50"s. His portrayal of Maxwell Slaugher is unforgettable and Steve McQueen's rare comic turn as Eustus Clay is funny, optimistic, sensetive, and hints at the huge star he will became. He rarely did a comedic role, and he is evidence of the cliche that "dying is easy; comedy is hard. Tuesday Weld is luminous, pathetic, and strangely tragic. I highly recommend this obscure film directed by Norman Jewison.

While this is not particularly artistic, or even a very strong movie in terms of production values; the bittersweet comic acting from Jackie Gleason and Steve McQueen is worth the 90-minute journey. There are plenty of classic scenes, though a bit-dated by today's standards that will make you giggle shamelessly. To me, the Mancini score takes the movie up a notch too!

[b] While looking through some old Steve McQueen movies I noted( Soldier in th Rain ) didn't have enough votes to be rated.[/b]
[b] It is a great movie, but I feel you must have been in the military to get the total meaning and feeling it gives out. [/b]
