Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came


Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came

"Suppose They Gave A War and Nobody Came" (a.k.a War Games, Old Soldiers Never) was a 1969 feature film.

The plot a mixture of comic and dramatic elements concerns the reactions of a number of WWII veterans to the then (1969) contemporary US army.

Directed by Hy Averback and produced by Fred Engles, the film includes Brian Keith, Don Ameche and Tony Curtis in leading roles.

The title is derived from an American slogan from the Vietnam era (popularized by Charlotte E. Keyes), perhaps most notably used as part of the lyric to the song "Zor and Zam" on The Monkees' 1968 album "The Birds, The Bees & the Monkees". [Allan, Kenneth. (2006). Contemporary Social and Sociological Theory: Visualizing Social Worlds. Pine Forge Press: Thousand Oaks, CA. pgs 348-349] [Keyes, Charlotte E., "'Suppose They Gave a War and No One Came'"(McCall's, October 1966)]
