URR Brings up a Classic: “Danny and Peachy”

Yes, yes– a classic.


  1. Mike Burke says:

    Fun film–I recall seeing it in a theater when I was a lieutenant–I showed it one year at West Point when I ran the film forum in the 80s–cadets loved it–all wanted to grow sideburns.

  2. Wilbur says:

    I'll have to watch that one again. Michael Caine himself turned 80 yesterday. Pity the two haven't done more films together, but it probably wouldn't have worked- we'd be forever comparing it with this one.

  3. Martin Morehouse says:

    The director wanted to make this movie for several decades, originally cast Clark Gable in one of the roles. It never came together until this version, and I think he got every bit of it right. My brother brought one of those rifles back from Afghanistan, but he's a Kipling character himself.

  4. 2Echo says:

    Always glad to see one of my favorite movies get some love. They sure don't make 'em like that any more… Hats on!
