My father was a D.I. at Parris Island MCRD when this movie came out. He has always maintained it was the really deal. I bought the dvd ,when it came out a few years ago for him. My son and I watched it with him (I spent 20 yrs in the Army, My son is current active duty Army). We watched the years roll of my father remembering what was like to be D.I. back then. He told us that was his favorite job in the Corps (24 year man). After watching it with him , my son said he now understood why we lead the life we all have that being one of service to our country,
This was, and still is a great movie. Jack Webb was born to play this role. Very inspirational movie.
Jack Webb was tailor-made for this role. He made me think of my drill instructor who was tough as nails and literally made me into the man I am today and prepared with the discipline I desperately needed. Here's to you MSgt. Esser!!
This movie made me join the military. I spent 23 years on active tours with multiple combat tours. This is the greatest movie ever made
How I made it through USMC basic training / boot camp at MCRD Parris Island, SC in 1983 I will never know. It's been 39 years since I was there and I think about that place every single day. Once more before I die, I would like to visit MCRD Parris Island, SC again. Full Metal Jacket, The D.I. and The Boys in Compony C are my favorite USMC boot camp movies. Rest in peace, R. LEE Ermey and Jack Webb.
I saw this when I was a kid on TV with my late Dad, in the 60s when he was a flight instructor at Ft. Rucker. We loved it. We both loved Jack Webb on Dragnet, but I had no idea he had made this movie much earlier. The actual Marines in the movie really helped it.
Jack Webb was a character actor during the 1940's and 1950's. Then he became a star when "Dragnet" came along. Somewhere between that and his days as a producer, he found his way into "The D.I." The censors toned it WAY DOWN, but aside from that, Webb's performance nailed it. His best work....
I believe this to be a true representation of boot camp, at least what I went thru in basic. I am not a Marine, but I still an emotional feeling of pride for the Corps when I here their anthem. God bless you Marines, you are the best!
They make you feel like a million bucks and could fight the whole damn world. Pride above and beyond the call of duty.
The scene where Moore 'catches' the recruit wearing the "Movie Starlet Sunglasses", is absolutely HILARIOUS! He takes the sunglasses off the wiseguy recruit, taps the lenses OUT of the frames. Puts the frames BACK on 'wiseguy', as if to say, you'll see MUCH better this way!
Of the few non-Marines, actor Don Dubbins did serve in the Marines after World War II ended and was actually 28 when this was filmed though he always did pass for younger characters during his career. Some say the film was made in response to the 1956 Ribbon Creek incident at Parris Island to give the Marines a more positive look to the general public whom relatively few knew how tough the Marines are.
I see all these stories about Basic Training & it makes me very happy to see the Military hasn’t changed too awful much over the years. I actually hit my year and gain PFC next month, I remember the scariest thing that happened to me at basic was my Co. 1SG screaming at me from across the Dfac. I greeted the 1lt, xo & all the NCO’s, but failed to notice 1SG cause of his seating placement (that, and throughout basic I never made eye contact). It was at that point he let me have it about how my career was pretty much over. Definitely scared me & I didn’t know if he was serious or not. What fun Fort Leonardwood was, cold too. Bitter cold. Thanks to all of you for your service and God Bless the Army & the USMC.
Generations of marines LOVE this movie & will continue to love it as a new generation of kids gets to watch it & be inspired. I know I've watched it w/my nephew when he asked me "what was it like in boot camp?" ( when he gets older I'll watch full metal jacket w/him, dont want to scare him too badly ). It's a shame though that kids are being taught that anyone in the military is bad nowadays & they arent shown propper respect. So I've taught my nephew the right way, & responsily as I know he looks up to me, just wish I was the one interviewing the teachers, to ensure they don't get taught to be service hating girly men that society seems to pump out nowadays.
oh wow!!!! thanks for this upload. my uncle was one of the marine officers that helped them with this... they would go to him to get authenticity....he and a few others made this seem very authentic. they Def don't mk anything close to this anymore. Hollywood has gone soft and that's sad indeed. anyways, thank again for bringing this to the world again. hopefully new people will look these up and watch them and learn.......
Jack Webb and R.Lee Ermey portray the best DI’s in the movies...with Ermey being the real deal!
I saw this film on TV in the late 50s or early 60s. I was drafted into the Army in 1966. I had no idea then that I'd eventually become a US Army Drill Sergeant serving at Ft. Dix, NJ as an Advanced Individual Training (AIT) Infantry Drill Sergeant.
My two brothers were U.S. Marines and proud of them. Semper Fi.
I saw this movie the first week-end that it was in the theaters ... I was 10 yrs old ... I loved it.
I remember watching this movie when I was young. It was one of the things that got me to go into the army when I became old enough. I spent many years in service to the United States in the United States Army. I’ve served in Vietnam. I wish I could do it again but alas I am too old. Gung ho Marines
Until the release of Full Metal Jacket, with the boot camp segment and Gunny Hartmann, this movie was as authentic a representation of Marine recruit training that there was. Webb was a good actor, and it helped that many of the "recruits" in the film were active duty NCOs who filled out the movie ranks.
