Extra star added for Gleason, whose natural gifts save the film from complete mediocrity. McQueen gives bar none his worst performance of his career. It's a wonder he worked again. I almost would recommend the film to watch his cringe-worthy attempt at a Gomer Pyle country bumpkin type character. Weld is a total babe and could actually act. A shame she got offered tripe like this. She and Gleason deserved better.
