IKE (TV miniseries)
WWII career of Dwight D. Eisenhower, with the focus on his relationship with Kay Summersby, his female British driver.
The Sergeant is on guard duty at I-Corps HQ, Algiers, and quite busy eyeing the ladies in the jeep. When Kay Summersby arrives in a nightgown after being rescued at sea, shes fair game for his sarcastic comments.
A tiny role, but he gets the most out of it.
WWII U.S. Army uniform and helmet. The stripes are those of a Sergeant, not a First Sergeant; credit uses 'first' to differentiate between three unnamed sergeant characters.
