R | | Drama, War
A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
When scouting for extras, the production offered parts to recently displaced Vietnamese communities living in The U.K. (known then as "Boat People").
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?
Recruits: Sir, yes Sir.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Bullshit I can't hear ...
When Hartmann slaps Pyle during the drill & comp scene, the second Marine in formation behind Pyle is played by two different actors between cuts of Hartmann slapping Pyle with his right hand and Hartmann slapping Pyle with his left hand.
