Joshua Reviews Ralph Nelson’s Soldier In The Rain [Warner Archive DVD Review]

14 June 2011 11:03 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

When one thinks of Steve McQueen, the last thing that pops into that person’s mind is the iconic actor acting like a loveable oaf, opposite someone like Jackie Gleason.  However, that’s exactly the case when it comes to the underrated gem of a comedy, Soldier In The Rain.

A 1963 film produced by Pink Panther helmer and comedy giant Blake Edwwards, Soldier stars Gleason and McQueen, and is based on the William Goldman novel of the same name.  Helmed by Ralph Nelson (best known for films like Requiem For A Heavyweight, also starring Gleason), the film itself is arguably better known for being released during the same week as the assassination of John F. Kennedy, but it’s also an absolutely wonderful comedy, that still garners laugh after laugh to this day.

Seeing a proper DVD release thanks to the Warner Archive, Soldier in the Rain follows the friendship »
