Personal Quote:

The truth is, whether your film is about the great mythological character you have to do right, or it's a little movie that nobody ever heard of, you still approach it like it's the most important thing in the world. But failing goes with the territory. Filmmakers are like gunslingers, and you don't win every duel. See more »

Trivia:

Stanley Kubrick was a big fan of The Boys in Company C (1978) and cited Sidney J. Furie's war movie as the direct inspiration for Full Metal Jacket (1987). Many critics have identified similarities between the two films including, not least of all, the casting of R. Lee Ermey who plays Marine Drill Instructor Sergeant Joyce in Furie's film and Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Kubrick's. See more »
