Dean Martin Westerns / Sergeants 3 / Part 3

I didn’t intend to do this much coverage of Sergeants 3, but these projects always get bigger than I expected.
It does have some interesting stuff though.

They had the Pack bounce on a trampoline for these shots.

Not sure of the language? – but Sergeants is spelled differently.

Wikipedia says: “Sergeants 3 is a 1962 remake of Gunga Din (1939) set in the American West, directed by John Sturges and featuring Rat Pack icons Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. It was the last film to all five members of the Rat Pack …”

The 4 Rat Pack movies were: Ocean’s Eleven (1960), Sergeants 3 (1962), 4 for Texas (1963), and Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964).

Tags / Sergeants 3

It was the fashion in the 60’s to often massively hype movies and often completely misrepresent their true flavor. Thus we see these Tags assigned to Sergeants 3 with make it look like some zany slapstick send up:

They’re the Wildest Characters in All the West!
You’ve gotta see it to know how wild the west can be!
They’re Gamblers… They’re Lovers… They’re The Wildest Characters In All The West! (British poster)
They take the West… Like it’s never been taken before!
are you READY?
MAN! This one’s THE WILDEST!
Even the Indians are funny in … SERGEANTS 3

Shameless exaggerations. Yes, Sergeants 3 had humor, but it also had some fairly serious undertones.

Most of the humor was rather on the clever side though – such as this clip of Dean playing poker with the Blacksmith:

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.
