About the Movie
Andy Griffith ("Matlock," "The Andy Griffith Show") and Myron McCormick repeat their roles from Ira Levin's hit Broadway play. It's peacetime in the Army, but laughter abounds as a hayseed private and his harried sergeant stage their own private war. One of the top-grossing films of its release year, which went on to spawn a TV series. Co-starring five-time Emmy Award-winner Don Knotts ("Matlock," "Three's Company").
Let's correct a few things...
The TV series that came from No Time for Sergants was No Time for Sergeants.
The Phil Silvers Show (Bilko) had been on TV for a few years already, when this film was released and was already on TV when the play was on Broadway.
It does NOT co-star Don Knotts. Knotts has a 4 minute cameo (out of a two hour movie) as an aptitude tester who is confounded by Griffith's character.
Gomer Pyle is a spin-off from The Andy Griffith Show. He was a Mayberry resident who worked at the "filling station" and was drafted. The character of Will Stockdale is very different from Pyle.
If u want to bust a gut laughing this is it! I saw it the first time as a kid and even them I laughed until I almost peed. It's still makes me laugh out loud. Just buy it or at least rent it. U won't be sorry!
No time for (Air Force ) Sergeants
One of the all-time great military comedies. Just for your info, despite what the plot summary says, this movie deals with Air Force personnel, not Army. I could be wrong, but I believe the show that was spawned from "Sergeants" was The Sgt. Bilko Show, starring Phil Silvers. The show took place in the Army, and was made into a movie with the same name a few years ago starring Steve Martin.
