Private Benjamin (10-Oct-1980)

Director: Howard Zieff

Writers: Nancy Meyers; Harvey Miller; Charles Shyer

Music: Bill Conti

Producers: Nancy Meyers; Harvey Miller; Charles Shyer

Keywords: Comedy, Boot Camp

Goldie Hawn is spoiled young socialite Judy Benjamin, recently widowed while in the act of lovemaking on their wedding night; she enlists in the Army to forget her troubles. Boot camp is a bit more than she bargained for. Later, she romances a French gynecologist. Funny but uneven comedy. Spawned a television sitcom, Private Benjamin (1981-83), starring Lorna Patterson. Eileen Brennan and Hal Williams reprise their roles.
