"Soldier in the Rain" is a 1963 comedy-drama film about the friendship between an aging, obese Army Master Sergeant (Jackie Gleason) and a young country bumpkin buck sergeant (Steve McQueen in an extremely uncharacteristic and animated comedic performance). Tuesday Weld plays Gleason's character's love interest in a film often referred to by critics as charming and unusual. Produced and co-written by Blake Edwards, the screenplay is based on the novel by William Goldman. The film was directed by Ralph Nelson, who had directed Gleason in "Requiem for a Heavyweight" the previous year.
