War Games is the streamlined reissue title for the satirical Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? The story is set in a sleepy Southern town, the site of a tranquil army base. Commanding officer Col. Flanders (Don Ameche), anxious to win the hearts and minds of the locals, invites the populace to an ice-breaking dance. When the festivities degenerate into a fistfight, right-wing militia leader Billy Joe Davis (Tom Ewell) declares war against the Army. The film's romantic subplot is carried by Tony Curtis as a love-'em-and-leave-'em sergeant and Suzanne Pleshette as a smarter-than-she-looks local gal. Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? was reworked as in 1984 as Tank.

Suppose They Gave A War and Nobody Came (a.k.a. War Games, Old Soldiers Never) is a 1970 feature film.
The plot is a mixture of comic and dramatic elements and concerns the reactions of a number of World War II veterans to the then (1969) contemporary US army.
Directed by Hy Averback and produced by Fred Engel, the film's cast includes Brian Keith, Don Ameche, Tony Curtis, and Pamela Britton.
The title is derived from an American anti-war slogan from the hippie subculture during the Vietnam War era (popularized by Charlotte E. Keyes), perhaps most notably used as part of the lyric to the song "Zor and Zam" on The Monkees' 1968 album The Birds, The Bees & the Monkees

The movie earned rentals of $630,000 in North America and $450,000 in other countries, recording an overall loss of $4,160,000
