Trivia: Louis Gossett Jr became the first African-American actor to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley in this film.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning when the new recruits have arrived & are being harangued by the drill sergeant for the first time, in the shot where he walks along the line of recruits towards the camera you can see the camera dolly tracks on the grass. Then when the angle changes to a long shot you can see the marks left in the grass by the tracks.
Foley: Wave good-bye to your buddies, Mayonnaise! Oh, I forgot. You don't have any buddies, do you? Only customers.
