This film is basically a remake of Gunga Din (1939) set in the American "Wild West". After filming was completed, the producers discovered they needed to secure the rights to the original story. They were forced to pay a large fee to the copyright owners before the film could be released. See more »
The shown lever-action arms carried by the soldiers were not issued to US units. 1873 saw the initial issuance of trapdoor Springfields, a breech-loading single shot rifle or carbine using a .45 caliber metallic cartridge - the same arms carried by Custers's troopers at Little Bighorn. See more »
A nice evening with the Rat Pack, but where is this film?
"Sergeants 3" was released in the time when the Rat Pack of Hollywood, Sinatra, Martin, Lawford, Davis, Bishop, etc. were in style. This may not have been one of their strongest movie efforts, but the fans of those stars and the viewing public could enjoy the tale, if it could be found, or copies made.
While serving as a retelling of the Gunga Din story, set in the Old West, the boys do put some honest effort in having Sinatra, Martin, and Lawford attempt to put down an Indian uprising, led by Henry Silva. Sammy Davis adds a delightful role as the lad that gets caught up in the action, while Joey Bishop plays an upright member of the cavalry that just can't accept the violations of rules committed by the Sergeants 3.
Would be good to see, just one more time.
