Can I buy Frank Randle
22 July 2001 | by (WEYMOUTH,ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

Fantastic film, I last saw this in 1987. Where the hell can I buy a copy on video? Frank Randle is superb as a shifty private in the army,his delivery of one liners are side splitting and I can remember them as though I have just watched the film.
