The last detail by Hal Ashby( Visual )
6 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nicholson, more than ever the epitome of a modern, cool James Cagney, stars as a three-hashmark Signalman 1/c, dispatched with Otis Young, a Gunners Mate 1/c of equal years of service, to guard Randy Quaid from a Norfolk, Va., brig to the Navy prison in Portsmouth, N.H. The U.S. Navy, unlike the other services, does not have a professional police corps. Instead, it rotates all ranks and rates through limited periods of security duties, a healthy practice which minimizes harassment by zealots and promotes a balanced empathy and enforcement perspective. Hence, from the outset of the story, the credibility is extremely high. Quaid is cast as a teenage misfit--not an uptight, twitchy rebel, but a bumbling, clumsy, naive and trouble-prone greenhorn of the type sometimes referred to in real life as 'destiny's tot.' A bungled ripoff of some charity money has gotten him eight years in Portsmouth. Nicholson and Young, awaiting new assignments at a receiving station, draw escort duty. With several days of transit time allowed, Nicholson decides to set a leisurely pace. The essence of the story is the exchange of compassion between the guards and prisoner, and the latter's effect on his escorts. The episodic encounters in the film's 103 minutes serve to mature Quaid while simultaneously exploring the motivations and characters of Nicholson and Young"--Variety review, December 5, 1973. They visit Washington, D.C. (hamburger and hotel room scenes), New York City (fight with Marines, dart game in bar, Nichiren Shoshu encounter) and Boston (visit to prostitute), on their way to New Hampshire
