  • The Short Timers by Gustav Hasford... a Vietnam War book , which Stanley Kubrick used as the cornerstone of Full Metal Jacket , another one of his masterpieces. One of the best ( and most caustic & hilarious !! ) openers ever to a movie. R Lee Ermey was a technical adviser , until Kubrick cast him , being a former USMC Senior Drill Instructor into THIS role after watching his perfect unscripted tirades on the recruits...

  • I will go back to "Shane" (1953) with Alan Ladd which was an adaptation of the Jack Schaefer novel of 1949.
