WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN? (Movie)
A journalist/photographer traumatized by Vietnam War mayhem decides to smuggle heroin to the US, which gets his wife and friend involved with gangsters.
This Marine is a bit weird and crazy, acclimatized to the war. May be putting on a bit of an act for the reporter. Asks to see his camera, plays with it.
The eternal problem of war films is how to get a bunch of guys in uniform to look different. JB is wearing a macrame and bead necklace with his Marine combat fatigues and has a pack of Camels tucked into the band of his helmet.
