Officers in confinement often self-segregate from the general prison population while in military confinement. The shame of confinement coupled with the resentment that many military convicts feel towards current or former officers means that they rarely interact with former enlisted prisoners.

With this many stars and big name director, I found it hard to believe that the people at Blockbuster Video NEVER HEARD OF THIS MOVIE - was not in their store OR their database. I guess they need to get their act together. I really enjoyed this movie - Burt Lancaster was great and the use of multiple screen sections (like Thomas Crown Affair) was extremely interesting. I highly recommend this picture.
