    The story goes that he was only there as a consultant but when Stanley Kubrick saw his performance in the warm up he was given the role.

    Watched the first part of FMJ yesterday. Up to the part where Pyle shoots him... Bit surreal.

    I'm going to watch something with someone United related in it tonight.

  7. Sad news. I absolutely love the opening scenes of FMJ.

    Only just read that the film was shot in England, I never knew that.

    I reckon he's somewhere having a tremendous non-scripted rant at someone.

    RIP Gunny.

    Full of so many great scenes and quotes.

    Most of his work was shot in England after he moved here. A reclusive genius.
