Soldier In the Rain - "Retreat Soldier!" Soldier in the Rain is a Military peace time Comedy starring Steve McQueen, Jackie Gleason and Tuesday Weld. Gleason is Master Sergeant Maxwell Slaughter, the smooth operator, who supply Sergeant Eustis Clay (Steve McQueen) idolizes and hopes will join him as a civilian in a private business enterprise.Clay endeavors to be a player in the military, just like Slaughter, but it seems as though Clay still has a lot to learn from his mentor.The two powerhouse leads are vibrantly supported by Tuesday Weld who holds her own as a shrill dizzy blonde teenager named Bobby Jo Pepperdine.Tony Bill is perfectly bumbling as Private First Class Jerry Meltzer, McQueen's screwball sidekick. Many DVD stores now offer MOD service, and so do we to keep a competitive edge. Soldier in the Rain was originally released by Allied Artists; the one-time Poverty Row company (then known as Monogram) was in the 1960s trying to improve its image with higher-profile releases.

Maxwell Slaughters (Jackie Gleason) game and man, can he play it. However, this movie is primarily about the comradeship between a very obese sergeant (Gleason) and a supply officer (McQueen) with endless schemes about getting rich. McQueen was having an affair with his co-star and he and Gleason didn't get along for most of the picture so I think that influenced me. item 1 SOLDIER IN THE RAIN / (FULL...-Soldier In The Rain DVD NEW 1 -, item 2 SOLDIER IN THE RAIN / (FULL...-Soldier In The Rain DVD NEW 2 -, item 5 Soldier in the Rain (DVD, 1963) Steve McQueen Jackie Gleason USED MINT!

The effect is similar to Edwards's Breakfast at Tiffany's which, at least to this reviewer, is a frustrating jumble of good and bad ideas: funny slapstick and perceptive human drama mixed with outrageously dumb stereotypes and sticky sentiment.

Blake Edwards was a director who tended to specialize in slapstick movies such as THE PARTY and the Pink Pather series. Slaughter is amused by Eustis's endless lame-brained schemes, like buying up penguins and selling advertising on their bellies. So Clay fixes Slaughter up with a teenybopper named Bobby Jo (Tuesday Weld), a move that sets off a chain reaction of laughs and drama. It's always visible and the accent and the mannerisms come off as actorly at best, completely phony at worst. McQueen and Gleason are both very believable in their roles, and McQueen was much more animated (and funny) than in most of his other roles.
