Ollie Joe - Portrait of an Original
19 November 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"Ollie Joe" is a story about young GI Ollie Joe Brown (excellently played by Robert Walker Jr.) who never knew what home was until being drafted. He never knew his mother & father and is in need of a constant father figure to guide his insecure ways.

Frank Moss wrote an interesting screenplay portraying highly neurotic, obsessive compulsive behavior; and Robert Walker Jr. plays it to the hilt. Most have known an Ollie Joe somewhere in their lifetime whether it be school, work, or perhaps a relative; always trying to fit in as part of the majority as opposed to feeling comfortable with who they are.

Bernard McEveety directed excellent combat scenes which are highlighted by fine acting and stunt performances by those playing the Germans. One can see the great physical conditioning which goes hand in hand with stunt work. Weaponry is graphic & real; and one can appreciate the craftsmanship shown in making such arms. Color programming strikingly accentuates what German & American uniforms, vehicles, and equipment looked like.

I'm critical of the Charlie Pelton bridge sequence in that a simple holler would have corrected the scenario. The sequence deserved more creativity.

"Ollie Joe" was definitely entertaining and makes the viewing audience really feel for those of similar circumstance and how frightening life must be for them.
