A Few Good Men

Two US soldiers (LCpl Dawson and PFC Downey) are accused of murdering a third one (PFC Santiago). They claim they weren't murdering him, they were giving him a 'Code Red' by an order given them by their CO, Col. Jessup.

Lt. Daniel Kaffe defends them - he is famous for never having been in a courtroom. Downey's aunt asks LtCmdr Galloway to represent his nephew, this way Galloway can push Kaffee to take the case seriously.

However, Kaffee changes his behaviour only when they meet Col. Jessup, a most arrogant man.

Continuity mistake: In one scene when Sam and Jo are leaving Danny's apartment, there is a wide shot showing Daniel opening the door, then there is a close up of Daniel and Sam, and Sam opens the door again.

Question: What's the significance of PFC Louden Downey not being in his room when the "Code Red" was given?

Answer: It'll be considered hearsay.

Answer: The point is that he wasn't there when the lieutenant ordered the code red. The lance corporal told him LT Kendrick had ordered the code red, but since he didn't hear it himself he couldn't testify to that fact.
