Cowritten by director Sidney J. Furie, The Boys in Company C charts the fortunes of five young Marine recruits. Led by Stan Shaw, the quintet is shipped off to Vietnam. The film makes no bones about the demoralizing effect the war has on its participants, nor the pigheadedness of the military higher-ups who think only in terms of body counts and photo ops. Of the five recruits, the most memorable are Michael Lembeck as Vinnie Fazio, the resident wiseguy (the same type of role played by Lembeck's dad Harvey in 1950s war films) and Andrew Stevens as Billy Ray Pike, a straight-arrow type who succumbs to the lure of drugs; the others are played by Craig Wasson, James Canning, and Scott Hylands.

This is actually the first vietnam war movie made after the war ended. If you've ever seen full metal jacket, you may be amazed just how alike these two movies are, even though they were made years apart. The main difference being, I think this movie has a better story and especially, a better ENDING. Have been waiting for it be released on DVD. Can't wait to see it again.
