Thanks to all. I first saw this film in 1961 while serving with the U.S. Army. One of my buddies was a former drama student at Northwestern and a real film buff. He dragged me to see this movie in the post theater, for a whopping 50 cents. The synopsis sounded a bit dry. The reality is that it was a riveting character study and a window into the special world of these regiments. It remains one of my all time favorite films. I believe it was also one of Alec Guinness' favorites among his performances. The music brings it all back.
