Full Metal Jacket - Private Pyle in the Head ...
In 67, during the Vietnam War, a group of new U.S. Marine Corps recruits arrives at Parris Island for basic training.. After having their heads shaved, they meet their Senior Drill Instructor, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.. Hartman employs draconian tactics to turn the recruits into hardened Marines prepared for combat.. Among the recruits are Privates "Joker", "Cowboy", and the overweight, bumbling Leonard Lawrence, who earns the nickname "Gomer Pyle" after attracting Hartman's wrath..Unresponsive to Hartman's discipline, Pyle is eventually paired with Joker.. Pyle improves with Joker's help, but his progress halts when Hartman discovers a contraband jelly doughnut in Pyle's foot locker.. Believing that the recruits have failed to improve Pyle, Hartman adopts a collective punishment policy: every mistake Pyle makes will earn punishment for the rest of the platoon, with Pyle being spared. In retaliation, the platoon hazes Pyle with a blanket party, restraining him to his bunk and beating him with bars of soap wrapped in towels.. After this incident, Pyle reinvents himself as a model Marine.. This impresses Hartman, but worries Joker, who recognizes signs of mental breakdown in Pyle, such as talking to his M14 rifle...Release dates September 11, 1987 (United Kingdom)... your parents have any children that lived?.Sir, yes,..sir.. I bet they regret that..What's your name..Sir, Leonard Lawrence, sir..Lawrence?. Lawrence what..of Arabia?.Sir, no, sir..That name sounds like royalty.. Are you royalty?..Are rounds?.Se7en-six-two millimeter..Full metal jacket...
