Sgt. James R. 'Fatso' Judson:
Tough monkey. Guys like you end up in the stockade sooner or later. Some day you'll walk in; I'll be waiting. I'll show you a couple of things.
At the beginning of the film Prewett goes into the day room and takes a cue stick from the rack. As he approaches the table Lancaster enters and asks "What d'you think you're doing?" as we hear Prew break. One second (maybe less) later the scene cuts back to Prew - at which time the balls should be moving. Instead, all of the balls are stationary AND the majority of them are at his end of the table. That was a remarkable break since they should have been, in only a fraction of a second, at the far end.
