Starring: Clint Eastwood, Marsha Mason, Mario Van Peebles
Directed By: Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood is Sergeant Tom Highway, a Marine who served hard time in the Korean and Vietnam wars, earning a collection of medals. In the process of resettlement, Highway tries to rekindle his feelings for his ex-wife, Aggie (Mason). He returns to what he knows best – training and preparing Marines for battle. Unfortunately, the crop of recruits he gets for training are a bunch of goof-offs with no real understanding of what it means to be a fighting Marine. Will Highway rekindle the spark in his failed marriage? Will his pathetic platoon become combat-ready before being shipped off to Grenada?
