Audience Reviews for Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came?

I didn't know what to expect from this film, perhaps a low-budget version of "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming"? I also assumed suave Tony Curtis was the star. But no, Brian Keith was the main character in what was a surprisingly intelligent script filled with great dialogue. Tony Curtis played against type as a reckless neer-do-well who is at the center of the film's climax. The movie was full of recognizable character actors from the 60's, all doing what they did best. Overall, a delightful surprise.
