Late in the movie, RSM Wilson circles the broken Tpr Roberts delivering a motivational barracking, the camera following Wilson through 360 degrees.

The sequence is preceded by a long shot of Wilson and Roberts surrounded by ten yards of empty desert.

As Wilson utters the words "You'll double, drill, do anything...", the camera pan reveals Sgt Williams standing a yard or two away, and Sgt Harris alone at the medical hut doorway in the distance.

After dealing with Roberts, Wilson turns to face the medical hut doorway, where Williams and Harris are standing side by side.

Wilson then summons Williams, who trots over to assume the position he was just seen in.

Crew or equipment visible 

The first time the new arrivals are shown around "the hill" by Staff Williams, the shadow of the rig is clearly visible as the camera performs a 360 degree shot from the top of the hill.

The new prisoners are lined up in the middle of the camp with their kit at their feet waiting to see the army doctor. As Stevens is called, a flat board suddenly appears in front of the line up so the camera can pull forward along the line up for a tracking shot. It disappears immediately afterwards.

Factual errors 

When Staff Sgt. Williams "introduces" the five prisoners to the hill, he refers to the "north face" but from the shadows, it's clear that it's really the south face.

Revealing mistakes 

Ossie Davis speaks with a West Indian accent, but when he is talking to the Commandant about Stevens' murder, his accent is gone.
