A World With Walls Speech

Did You Know?

… that Director Rob Reiner always likes to subtly promote his other movies in the movies that he is making. In A Few Good Men, a copy of Stephen King's novel Misery can be seen beside Danny's typewriter while he watches a ball game. Misery was also directed by Rob Reiner.

... Before it was a movie A Few Good Men was a Broadway play. Tom Hulce played Lt. Kaffee (Tom Cruise) and Stephen Lang had the Lt. Col. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) role.

... that Aaron Sorkin is also the creator, Executive Producer and head-writer for white house TV drama The West Wing.

... that Aaron Sorkin got the idea for the play after talking with his sister (who was a JAG Corp lawyer) about a similar real-life incident that involved "Code Reds" on the American military base in Cuba.

Is there really such a thing as "code red" . Not officially. Wikipedia provides us a list of all the things code red has come to mean including a British Boy Band for 1996, a drink by Mountain due, a computer virus and signature wrestling move.

... that Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has a "concerned bystander" role in the film. He can be seen in the background talking to a woman in the bar where Daniel (Tom Cruise) goes to talk to Jack Ross (Kevin Bacon) at about the midpoint of the movie.

... A Few Good Men opens with a Marine Corps drill team performance. The Marines in that sequence were actually students from the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets Fish Drill Team. Fish is what the freshman in the cadet program are called. Texas A&M supplies more officers in the United States military than any other school.

... You can read the script for A Few Good Men online.

... Unlike some people we know (coughIMDB cough) we don't like to go through movies looking for errors, however knowing a little bit about the Marine Corps, there is one glaring error in this otherwise wonderful script. Lt. Kaffee says "Don't answer me like I just asked you to clean the latrine." The latrine! A Marine would never call a bathroom a latrine. That's an Army term. A Marine would say the Head. Just wanted you to know that.

... Just for fun. Many people have been moved to parody the famous "You can't handle the truth scene" from A Few Good Men. Unfortunately they aren't very funny. We watched them all for you and decided to go with the monkeys. Not because it's any funnier than the others but just because they are monkeys.

Hollywood Walk of Fame Star
In the early 1960's, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce developed the idea of the "Hollywood Walk of Fame." The sidewalks of the most famous streets in the heart of Hollywood were lined with "stars" recognizing celebrities' life-long contributions to the entertainment industry. Receiving a star is still to this day considered a huge honor. Here's where you can find the stars of Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and director Rob Reiner:

Lieutenant Commander Joanne Galloway ( Demi Moore ):

"My job is to make sure that you do your job. I'm special counsel for internal affairs. So my jurisdiction is pretty much in your face."
