Plot[edit]

Needs a section summarizing the plot

The Clash has a live album of same name. Need for a disambiguation page?

The opening sentence in this article "ordinary bouts of intimidation and infidelity" is about as lazy--or POV--as they come. horrid.--Buckboard 00:24, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Okay, I removed ordinary (POV) replaced with daily in the sense of the everyday stuff.Julia Rossi 10:39, 20 September 2007 (UTC)


Where does the title come from? Rudyard Kipling and Barrackroom Ballads? PiCo 23:50, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

rumor reported as fact[edit]

As the Deborah Kerr article notes, there is no confirmation of romantic involvement with Lancaster. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.127.59.231 (talk) 01:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Portrayal of Maggio[edit]

Recently the following edit: "The character of Maggio is a male hustler in the novel, and the novel's portrait of gay nightlife in Waikiki circa 1941 is not to be found in the film version. Also cut from the film: at the novel's start, one of the main characters is having an affair with a Japanese American girl under her parents' roof. As is typical of films about Hawaii up to and including Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor, the ethnic diversity of Hawaii tends to be neglected in studio films about the islands; the novel at least recognizes the rich ethnic diversity of the islands, even if explored primarily through a sexual lens." was made to amplify the production section.

I believe that the material is relevant and can be retained although I have asked for a citation/reference link so that it will not fall into the category of unverified or WP:NPOV. FWiW, please comment. Bzuk (talk) 13:42, 6 December 2009 (UTC).

The ethnic diversity comments definitely need a source or three. Clarityfiend (talk) 05:32, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Sergeant Warden[edit]

Warden was a First Sergeant (or "Top" sergeant) not Sergeant First Class (a lesser rank). Warden did not participate in "the treatment" used to coerce Prewitt to box. That was done by the lesser non-coms in the company and on the boxing team. —Preceding unsigned comment added by GrandpaMartin (talkcontribs) 20:31, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Gross vs earnings[edit]

The article states the picture had earnings of $12.2 million with a gross of $30.5 million. bug with a budget of only $1.65 million, where did the other $27,630,000 go? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.198.150.161 (talk) 02:53, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Schofield Barracks[edit]

Schofield Barracks was named after General John Schofield, an American Civil War general who became Secretary of War and then gave himself the Medal of Honor. Originally people could recommend themselves for the Medal of Honor. 108.237.241.88 (talk) 02:58, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

parodies[edit]

There ought to be a list of parodies of the beach scene. I'm pretty certain Sid Caesar did one, and of course there's the takeoff in Airplane!. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 11:59, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
