A fresh look …

… Paul Davis On Crime: A Look Back At Jack Nicholson in 'The Last Detail'.

Great film, great performance. And just by Nicholson. Randy Quaid also is excellent, as is Otis Young.


  1. Frank,

    You're right. Quaid, Young and the other supporting actors are also very good. Hal Ashby did a fine job of directing and Robert Towne wrote a great screenplay.

    Have you read the novel? Darryl Ponsicon spent four years in the Navy so he knows his material.

    But Towne changed the ending of the story for the film and for once I thought the film ending was better than the novel's ending. I won't divulge the ending here...
