    funny that you should post this 'cos I only just recently watched it.

    didn't watch it on youtube though, it must have been on tv or as a dvd extra.





    obviously there were language barriers as well..

    the Brits were "underpaid, undersexed and under Eisenhower".

    I loved Burgess Meredith character In Harm's Way as Commander Egan Powell. He had my favorite in the film "Man, I tell you, the women - they're smokin' cigarettes, drinkin' whiskey, doin' the shimmy-sham-shimmy, hot damn!"

    Absolutely. He was fabulous. I liked how he stood there and watched Kirk Douglas slap the snot out of the congressman, didn't say boo.
