I was an extra also for this movie although the entire Cadet Corps of Texas A&M University were extras. Busey sure had a hard time with those lines. We stood out there for a couple hours while he struggled over a handful of lines, and honestly it started getting ridiculous the way he would fumble over the same sentence time and time again. Reading other peoples comments he was apparently drunk a lot over the course of the film's shooting. From an Oscar winner we all expected a bit more class and professionalism from him considering how we spent extra hours that afternoon spit shining our shoes and, polishing brass to the utmost, just in case the camera showed on us and then gave up a few hours of our study that night. Goofing your lines over and over in front of 1600 disciplined Aggie Cadets was pretty sad. They also filmed the Bonfire that year as filming took place only a few days before the Texas A&M vs Texas game, but i've no idea if any of that was in the film or even the scene we all shot. I didn't catch it at the theater when it came out unfortunately i've not found it on DVD or VHS. If anybody knows where to get it please post.
