The Sergeant : BRASS BALLS!!!


I'm referring to the raw courage it took not only to make this movie, but for the lead actor to put his reputation on the line. What other big name Hollywood actor would do this? Lee Marvin? Ernest Borgnine? Gene Hackman? Paul Newman? Kirk Douglas? Burt Lancaster? Here's your answer: none of the above. Rod Steiger deserves EVERY accolade for his DECISION to do this role.

There is no "off" position on the genius switch.
