No Time for Sergeants
No Time for Sergeants is a 1958 American comedy film based on a play by Ira Levin inspired by the original novel. It was directed by Mervyn LeRoy, starring Andy Griffith and featuring Myron McCormick, Don Knotts and most of the original Broadway cast, joined by Warner Bros. contract player Nick Adams and Murray Hamilton.
Will Stockdale (Griffith) is a backwoods rube from Georgia, with super strength and a weak mind, who is drafted into the United States Air Force. Other draftees being transported to basic training include the dim Ben Whitledge (Nick Adams) and obnoxious bully Irving S. Blanchard (Murray Hamilton). The unhappy Whitledge wants to be assigned to the infantry where his six brothers served.
