Movie Info

A trio of army men battle the right wing powers of a small redneck town way down South in Dixie. Nace (Brian Keith) along with his buddies Shannon (Tony Curtis) and Jones (Ivan Dixon) go up against Billy Joe Davis (Tom Ewell), who has the town in his hip pocket. The local sheriff (Ernest Borgnine) does the bidding of the boss, who commands a fleet of pick-up trucks, Chevys and Thunderbirds. When Shannon is thrown in the local jail, Nace and Jones get drunk and commandeer a World War II tank to come to his rescue. Colonel Flanders (Don Ameche) is the flustered commander who contends with the three disorderly servicemen as they go up against the redneck army. Suzanne Pleshette is the local bar owner who pushes beer on the troops and the civilians. Bradford Dillman and Arthur O'Connell also appear in this offbeat comedy.
