Trivia

With the absence of the star player in this film, Borgnine was flabbergasted that he was not initially asked to appear in the movie. Moreover, Borgnine never got a clear explanation why he was not even asked to appear in this movie. Some critics believe that Borgnine refused to be in this movie due to a salary dispute but that was not the case. The producers were on a tight budget keeping production costs down giving Conway and Flynn more screen time. See more »

McHale's Navy with no McHale ...
11 February 2008 | by vrangerSee all my reviews

The title of the comment about says it all. Even though there is a good comedic cast in this movie and some amusing moments, I think they were a bit desperate to try to sell this without Ernest Borgnine being in it.

On the other hand, you do get to see Tim Conway, and early looks at Gavin MacLeod and Bob Hoskins. Sadly, although he was in a lot of TV and film I watched in the 60s, I just never could warm up to Joe Flynn's single character persona. Of course, he was always the foil, so you weren't meeant to warm up to him. Still, other notable character foils managed to do so without being quite as irritating. (Ted Baxter in Mary Tyler Moore, or Richard Deacon in The Dick Van Dyke Show, as examples).
