The Private War of Major Benson is 1955 comedy film starring Charlton Heston, Julie Adams, Sal Mineo and Tim Hovey, about a tough-talking U.S. Army Officer who must shape up the JROTC program at Sheridan Academy, a Catholic boys' military school, or be forced out of the Army.
The movie was filmed on St. Catherine's Military School campus in 1955, with cadets as the actors in all but the leading roles. Universal-International Studios chose St. Catherine's cadets and location for their humorous comedy about the challenges facing the new commandant of a Military School by the antics of a group of grade school cadets. The picture starred Charlton Heston, Julie Adams, William Demarest, and a full battalion of St. Catherine's finest.
