As a huge Jack Webb fan and a huge Arch Hall (Sr. & Jr.) fan, I had longawaited the opportunity to see Jack Webb's portrayal of the life of ArchHall Sr. I was a bit disappointed, though, when I discovered that themoviewas a comedy about Arch's army career, not about his production of filmgreats like...
By 1960, "Dragnet" had been cancelled, and so had all of Mark VII LTD'sother TV series. Webb's intention was to do theatrical films from now on.Then he made this film."The Last Time I Saw Archie" is a series of comedy vignettes hooked on atrue life situation - a stateside camp consisting of "leftov...
Light, entertaining piece that oddly seems to fit both Webb and Mitchum.Thescriptwriter had an excellent feel for how things worked (and still work,probably) in the Army if you know how to play the angles. Most of us whospent a few years on active duty (I spent 21 yrs) pulled a lot of thesestunts, ...
A pity this very funny film has slipped into some sort of limbo lately,though it was common TV fare not too many years ago. It shows just howimaginative a director Jack Webb really was: the picture is full ofdelightful little directorial touches (most of them quite amusing). Thecasting of many famil...
I had to note that the title character is none other than the producer ofthe Bad Film classics Wild Guitar, Eegah (also director) the ThrillKillers,and the Choppers. He is also the Dad of "star" Arch Hall Jr. Another greatWebb film, and the only one he did with Mitchum. Webb should be betterknownfo...
That rarest of cinematic animals: A Jack Webb comedy... That is, an INTENTIONAL Jack Webb comedy. In at least one interviewMitchum claimed this was his favorite role, because he "got paid$400,000 in advance". Mitchum plays Archie Hall, a charming con manwho's always scamming his army superiors durin...
This is an amazingly odd film--one very few people would expect to havebeen directed by and co-starring Jack Webb. Yes, it's THE JackWebb--you know, Sgt. Joe Friday from DRAGNET. Here, his character is alot less stiff and formal. In fact, the soldier he plays is a friend toone of the laziest and lea...
This movie combines features of the WWII Aviation Cadet program(Preflight), Civilian Pilot Training Program, and O.C.S. It is not like anyof them as An Officer and a Gentleman is not like any USN program. However,I would think that the writer had been in one of the programs to get it soright as to...
No one will ever rate The Last Time I Saw Archie as one of RobertMitchum's greatest films. But it does and Mitchum does have a certaindroll quality that makes it passably amusing, at least to me.This is believe it or not a true story based on the memoir ofscreenwriter William Bowers played here by J...
Funny stories about con men in the military are nothing new, and thisone seems especially implausible (even though it allegedly has somebasis in truth). But that doesn't matter. Archie Hall is anunforgettable character, and the great Robert Mitchum brings himsplendidly to life. For all the pros in t...
"Archie" stars all the really great character players from the timeperiod. People whose names you might not know, but who's faces and thevoices were quite familiar, make up the Army Air Force unit. Don Knottshad been working on the Andy Griffith show for under two years whenthis was released so he w...
I see France Nuyen was born in France of mixed parentage. She no doubtdropped the G so that her show biz name would not be difficult to sayas it is with many non-Viets. So Nguyen ("win") became Nuyen("new-yen") for the movie goer. If she had taken on the Viet named forFrance she would be called Phap...
