Additional Physical Format: Online version: Brophy, John, Immortal sergeant. New York, Harper [©] (OCoLC) Material Type: Fiction. Immortal Sergeant is hardly the greatest WWII movie, but it's not bad at all. Based on a bestselling novel by John Brophy, whose name appears above the title, the film is about a timid Canadian corporal (Fonda) serving in a British unit in Libya. Applying the lessons learned from the Immortal Sergeant, Spence is able to lead his comrades back to allied lines, becoming a hero in the process. Second-billed Maureen O'Hara plays Spence's sweetheart in a series of gratuitous but effective flashbacks. Immortal Sergeant was based on 5/5(1).
