Editor's NoteStar Andy Griffith's comedic timing is perfect in a role that helped make him a national celebrity. Griffith is Will Stockdale, a country bumpkin who is drafted into the air force during the cold war. Sergeant King (Myron McCormick) is a lifer pleased with the ease and repetition of his path, which ends abruptly with the arrival of the naive Southerner. King fumes and schemes in an effort to control the company damage that derives from Stockdale's bumblings and terminal curiousity. The company psychiatrist proves no match for Stockdale's backwoods wisdom, and death itself is defeated when Stockdale shows up to his own funeral in one of the funniest scenes in the film. Griffith's comic rendering of Stockdale is surpisingly three-dimensional, combining intelligence and warmth with bizarre misconceptions about his place in the world as an army inductee. The supporting cast is also excellent, including Don Knotts, Nick Adams, Benny Baker, and Jamie Farr.

|No Time for Sergeants is a 1958 film starring Andy Griffith that takes southern stereotypes to the max. Griffith plays a character who spouts “gollllllllleeeee” with the frequency of a Gomer Pyle, and is so naïve and innocent you’re not surprised he’s never been off the farm.

Griffith plays a barely literate Will Stockdale, a young man who proves that uneducated and stupid are not the same thing....read the full review|
