Ryan, Holt, and the soldiers and recruits at Ft. Bliss wear the shoulder patch of the 4th Army - a white four-leaf clover on a red diamond. The 4th Army was activated in 1932 as the U.S. Western Defense Command. During World War II, the 4th Army operated the Louisiana maneuver area, and was credited with training about half the combat units that went overseas. See more »
When Ryan and Holt have the troops on a training exercise in the field, Ryan tells Holt to "get back to base." The Army doesn't refer to its facilities as bases. An actual solider would have said "get back to the post." See more »
Dull, Clichéd, and Uninteresting Boot Camp Movie with Nothing Much to Say Except these are America's Fighting Men and the Military is well, The Military. This is Without Doubt the Most Boring Film Ever Made About Drill Sergeants and the "Young People" They Turn Into Soldiers.
Richard Widmark, Karl Malden, and Director Richard Brooks Can Not Save this Conservative Piece of Propaganda and Elevate it Beyond the Mundane. The Soldiers Mostly Overact, Especially Russ Tamblyn, and the Film is Made in Such a Pedestrian Way that as Entertainment it Fails Miserably.
Unlike the WWII Films of the Forties, This One, Ironically Like the Korean Conflict, Comes Off as Half Hearted, Listless, and Uncommitted. It is Truly One of the Most Unimpressive Movies Ever Made About the Military, Soldiers, or War. A Failure From Frame One.
Note The Movie does reflect the newly implemented integration of the Army and gives a Black Actor a prominent Role.
