From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
There has never been such bickering at the 4077...even Hawkeye and BJ snipe at one another! Father Mulcahy obtains Colonel Potter's favorite 1946 John Ford classic western, "My Darling Clementine" for 4077 movie night. Everyone, from Private to Major, has gone "plumb loco," from all of the hard work and Col. Potter is ecstatic to be able to screen this movie for his crew. Four of the nurses are invited to dinner by Gen. Armistead at "I" Corp: wine, tablecloths, pilots... a car is being sent to pick them up for dinner. The film is full of splices and keeps going "kerflooey" so Potter encourages the group to sing "Tennessee Waltz" while Klinger tries to fix the film. But, Klinger is neither Mr. nor Mrs. Thomas Edison...the film breaks again. This time, Father Mulcahy pounds the ivories with an Army classic: "Gee, Ma, I Wanna Go Home." The next 2 film breaks bring impersonations of Father Mulcahy... and a solo by Hotlips. The "I" Corp driver decides to stay and join the fun. The 4077 is ... Written by
Everyone is edgy. Boredom has led to finding tasks for the gang and they aren't happy with their work. Mulcahy picks up the mail and announces to Potter that he has brought one the old man's favorite movies. He keeps it a secret from the camp. After supper he announces that it is the famous Wyatt Earp movie "My Darling Clementine" with Henry Fonda and a host of character actors. The age and condition of the film cause numerous breakdowns. While they are waiting for repairs, they sing and joke and have a great time. It's just a charming way to show the love and brotherhood (sisterhood, too) that exists here. Well done.
