In 1962 Dean Martin makes his 3rd Western: Sergeants 3. No Classic, but interesting for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s Produced by Frank Sinatra – and Directed (believe it or not) by the great Director John Sturges, Director of the Great Western Classics: The Magnificent Seven (1960) and Gunfight at OK Corral (1957) – plus The Great Escape (1963) – among others. Amazing! So why would Sturges want to Direct such an offbeat project? Well why not! You get to work with some of the Greatest names in Las Vegas/Hollywood entertainment history: Sinatra, Martin and Sammy Davis Jr!! The real trick would be to keep this set from turning into an outright party – though it’s said that the Pack usually behaved like the Pros they were.

  1. I love Sergeant 3. Frank Sinatra Jr. told me in person: “My dad thought they would use a stuntman for the drag under the wagon, which they did, but for the close-up Sturgis pushed Sinatra to do it twice.” John Sturges’ has great compositions of groups within the frame. In my top 20 favorite movies is ‘The Satan Bug’ directed by Sturges.
