The Official Phil Silvers Bust      

 

The British PHIL SILVERS Appreciation Society are proud to present this LIMITED EDITION bust of the legendary PHIL SILVERS with the help and support of Phil's family.

 

Sculpted by artist Steve Thompson this resin bust depicts Phil in his iconic role as US Army Master Sergeant Ernest G Bilko – RA 15042699, the character he played in the hugely successful television sitcom THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW.

 

Created by the great Nat Hiken and originally called YOU’LL NEVER GET RICH the show was re-titled THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW but to fans worldwide it became known simply as SGT.BILKO.

 

From 1955 to 1959 and a total of 144 episodes over four seasons Bilko would scam, con, hustle and bilk his way through life at Fort Baxter and later at Camp Fremont with an elaborate series of get-rich-quick schemes usually involving his fellow enlisted soldiers and officers.

 

The show was Emmy Award-nominated for both Comedy Writing and Best Series in all four of its seasons, winning awards in 1955, 1956, 1957, and 1958. The series went on to receive a further nine other nominations during its run and remains one of the most influential television comedy shows of all-time!
