A Tribute to Jeffrey Hunter
Although The Private Navy of Sgt. O'Farrell is set in Hawaii, it was
filmed in Puerto Rico.
THE PRIVATE NAVY OF SGT. O'FARRELL .... 1968
(Lt. Lyman P. Jones) Jeff seems to be
thoroughly enjoying himself in his role as a Naval officer--a proud descendant
of John Paul Jones of "I have not yet begun to fight!" fame--on a Hawaiian base
in this World War II comedy. Sgt. O'Farrell (Bob Hope) tries to retrieve beer
that is lost when the cargo ship about to deliver it to the base is torpedoed by
the Japanese. In further shenanigans, Hope tries to "recruit" beautiful nurses
for his outfit--and Phyllis Diller shows up! Also starred Gina Lollobrigida,
Mylene Demongeot, and Dick Sargent.
