The play, and then the movie were popular enough to spawn a series of comic books under the same "No Time for Sergeants" title, running from 1958 through the 1964 television series. See more »
When General Bush and General Pollard meet, General Bush is wearing a hat with general officer embellishments on the brim, known as "scrambled eggs" in military parlance, but General Pollard's hat does not have scrambled eggs on the brim, which is incorrect, since all officers of Major or above for Army, Air Force, or Marines would rightly have scrambled eggs on the brim.

I think that I would rather live in the rottenest pig sty in Tennessee or Alabama than the fanciest mansion in all of Georgia. How about that?
Well, sir... I think where you wanna live is your business.

During a ceremony to Will Stockdale and Benjamin Whitledge, a radio announcer mentions Operation Prometheus, (that Will Stockdale jumped out of and pulled Ben Whitledge out with him, to parachute to the ground) mentions privates Stockdale and Whitledge's names. Stockdale and Whitledge (in unison) each ask saying their last-name Stockdale and Whitledge? The radio announcer answers back "Yes, Stockdale and Whitledge." See more »
Is still the best movie ever to tinkle your insides.
I first watched this movie when I was ten years old. I laughed and laughed and laughed. It still makes me laugh after all these years. When Andy, or Will as he was called in the movie, hit that button in the latrine and all them toilet seats flew up at once to salute the general I thought my dad was going to have a stroke he laughed so hard. My father was a private in the airforce and he related to this movie as he was in the airforce during the early 1950's. I lost my father on July 28th, 1999, and my mom in January 2000, but I have very fond happy memories of laughing with my mom & dad while watching this movie. Those memories are priceless. Thank you for those wonderful memories.
