Vietnam War Movie Fans: Which movie was this?
I saw a movie (may have been 2 separate movies) as a kid (20ish years ago) and remember a couple scenes, but it has been killing me for a few years that I can't remember what movie(s) it was. These recounts are real fuzzy and not completely accurate, I'm sure.
#1 Helicopter flying above jungle at treetop level playing "Wooly Bully" over PA system. The pilots' commander asks him what the heck he was doing (back on the ground) and he replies that he was told to test the PA. Do they work asks the commander, to which the pilot replies "Yes sir! Those 14 inch woofers really ki- Umm, yes sir."
#2 Soldier (or Marine, I didn't know the difference at the time) returns from jungle patrol and proceeds to ask the quartermaster for new socks. The QM says "sure, you can exchange your old ones." The soldier says "they rotted off." QM: "no exchange, no socks" Soldier gets PO'd, the QM says that he could get him new socks if the soldier "burns the pooper (services the latrine)." Soldier: "I ain't burnin no pooper!"
Later, you see the QM head to the latrine and hear someone singing "Mamas' little baby loves shortenin', shortenin'" and the person singing rolls a grenade into the latrine. as the latrine (and the QM) blow up, he finishes :"Mamas little baby loves shortenin bread."
Anybody? Really, I've tried to let this go for years, but I still lose slepp over it. HELP!
