Quotes

First Sgt. Mike Merry: He should get out of this, after all, he's an educated man who'd look forward to better things. I mean he's not at all like Chip and I, you know, we're used to constant fighting and hardships. And it's beginning to tell a little bit on old Larry, don't you think so?

RARE RAT PACK COMEDY/WESTERN GEM
5 January 2004 | by STREETSURVIVORSee all my reviews

If you are reading this you probably know how much fun this Rat Pack

film is to watch. You probably also have not seen it in years thanks to United Artists who own the rights. I don't think it will be made available for sale anytime soon. This is one of my favorites from this genre of film making. The reason is that I love the Rat Pack , western movies and comedies. But I think you have to be a big fan of the Rat Pack to have much interest in the film. This is why I don't think we will see it released for sale to the public. There are some folks selling copies of VHS & DVD (taped from reel). I would use caution when buying because I have spent money on some pretty bad versions over the years.
