First film as a producer (an executive) for actress Goldie Hawn. Hawn said of this in the biography 'Pure Goldie: The Life and Times of Goldie Hawn' by Marc Shapiro: "I didn't plan on becoming a producer... I only wanted to create better roles for myself, and I loved the idea of Private Benjamin so much that I felt it would be the perfect opportunity to finally control my own destiny." See more »
The berets worn by the soldiers and army officers in the film show the typical folds of berets that clearly have never been worn. In real army life, this is how you recognize new recruits. Any beret which has been worn for more than a few months will stay in the shape pushed to one ear. See more »
This film is about a unfortunate young lady whose husband dies on their wedding night. She copes with her sorrow by mistakenly enlisting in the United States army.
"Private Benjamin" is very funny! Even the film is already thirty years old, the jokes are timeless. The scene that Goldie Hawn explaining that she is sent to the wrong army is hilarious. Well, actually the whole section about her adjusting to the fact that Army life is not a holiday is hilarious. Even though I have seen similar story lines before, it is still hilarious. If only all the comedies stood the test of time like "Private Benjamin"!
