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 »
This is a hilarious movie that doesn't have to resort to insulting humor or lewd remarks. Andy Griffith is the naive and innocent Will Stockdale who is drafted into the Air Force. He unintentionally reeks havoc across the barracks and with the drill seargant. I laugh until I almost cry most every time I see this gem of a film. This film was the inspiration for The Andy Griffith Show spinoff Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. A wonderful film that is worth watching again and again.
