Steve Douglas' other sons were Mike (who left after the move to CBS, Rob and Ernie.

A little back-story. The inspiration for Rally Round the Flag Boys was the construction in the 1950s of a Nike Missile site next door to what would later be the high school I attended. Newman and Woodward lived a couple of blocks away and they were deeply involved in the effort to block the construction--an effort that ultimately failed. By the time I went to high school in the early 70's, the base was closed. I hear it has since been turned into an observatory.

Naturally, I was excited about seeing this movie as a kid, and I was disappointed that it bored me to tears.


Name Steve Douglas' other three sons.

Well he had four, but only three at a time. As Sabremom points out, Mike left at which point they had Ernie "adopted".
