The Phil Silvers Show

Show Summary

Phil Silvers plays Ernie Bilko, a motor pool sergeant in the U.S. Army. He is based at Fort Baxter, a small camp hidden away near a town called Roseville, in the wilds of Kansas. The camp is supposably run by Colonel Hall, but it's Bilko that calls the shots. Whether it's poker games, betting on the horses, or when ever he was short of money, which was just about all the time, getting his platoon to cough up. Along with the other sergeant's from the Mess Hall, Signals, and Supply, Bilko is continually at war with Colonel Hall, who is desperately trying to put a stop to the gambling once and for all. The supporting cast are superb. From Bilko's two henchman, Corporals Rocco and Hen shall, (Harvey Lembeck, and Allan Melvin), Sgt Hogan (Elizabeth Fraser), who has an on and off relationship with Bilko, and individual members of the platoon, to Colonel Hall, and his wife (Paul Ford, and Hope Sansberry). After 40 years since it was made, the episodes still turn up on British TV, and it looks as good as ever. This show is also known as You'll Never Get Rich.moreless
