Trivia Because Ed Wynn kept flubbing his lines during rehearsal, there was serious concern that he wouldn't be prepared to do a live drama. Consequently, Ned Glass, who played the minor role of a bartender, secretly learned the part of Army and rehearsed privately with Jack Palance and Keenan Wynn. In the end, Ed Wynn went on and delivered a solid performance. The making of this drama was later depicted in The Man in the Funny Suit (1960), which was likewise directed by Ralph Nelson. See more »
