Think of one common element that's present in The Last Detail, An Officer And A Gentleman, and Top Gun. It ain't prisoners.

Academy award winner, A-list actors, in color, made in the '50's, not about World War Two.

Nestor: "And another thing. Ya gotta stop sassin' them officers like ya just did."
Mike: "When are ya gonna learn, Nestor? You can say anything you want to 'em, as long as ya put 'sir' on the end of it."

Paths to Glory?? That's about WWI, but it's in black and white!

It has a Jack Nicolson connection, but Top Gun and O. & a Gentleman?!

I didn't say it has a Jack Nicholson connection... I said it has something in common with a Jack Nicholson movie, The Last Detail. Once again, if you had to boil The Last Detail down into one word, what would it be? It's a "______" movie, just like An Officer And A Gentleman and Top Gun are also "______" movies.

I think I know the theme and the quote sounds familiar.

"The Sand Pebbles"?

I like the way you think, Keith. Sand Pebbles is one of my favorite movies of all times. Plenty of good quotes from McQueen and other great actors... a classic if there ever was one. But Sand Pebbles was made in 1966, and my movie is from the 1950's.

It's a "____" movie, just like The Last Detail, An Officer And A Gentleman, Top Gun, Sand Pebbles and In Harm's Way are also "____" movies (but not Taps, Stripes, Patton, A Bridge Too Far, Platoon or Paths of Glory).

Excellent movies all, but none are correct! Maybe you guys need some more dialog:


Mike: "My hat and scarf, please."

Nestor: "Can't ya wait til we get off the ship? What if the Captain had seen ya?"

Mike: "We don't save captains, Nestor, we save pilots. When they're down there in the icy water with only minutes to live, it makes 'em feel awful good to look up here and see this green hat."

Nestor: "And another thing. Ya gotta stop sassin' them officers like ya just did."

Mike: "When are ya gonna learn, Nestor? You can say anything you want to 'em, as long as ya put 'sir' on the end of it."
