In Hawaii in 1941, a private is cruelly punished for not boxing on his unit's team, while his captain's wife and second-in-command are falling in love.
Frank Sinatra's salary for the film was a measly $8000, so low was his stock at the time.
Sergeant Milton Warden:
He'd strangle in his own spit if he didn't have me around to swab out his throat for him.
In the bar fight scene between Fatso and Maggio, Sgt. Warden breaks a bottle to use as a weapon to threaten "Fatso" and to stop the fight. Eventually he throws the bottle, apparently outside through an off stage, unseen door (he throws the broken bottle across the room). Later, the smashed bottle is visible on the table in a close-up.
