There's even more involving the Hall family. In 1961, a highly fictionalized
biopic movie about the war experiences of ARCH W. HALL SR. was made:
The Last Time I Saw Archie, a comedy directed by its star Jack Webb
and co-starred Robert Mitchum as Archie. Writer William Bowers (played by
Webb) used his own army experiences (rather than Hall's) for the script,
but the real Archie Hall Sr. sued for invasion of privacy anyway! In 1966,
Arch Sr. stopped producing and directing films, mostly starring his son,
whom he had hoped would be the next Elvis. He died while teaching a film
class in 1979.
