Soldier in the Rain Reviews
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.
