The Last Detail

Director: Hal Ashby.
Starring: Jack Nicholson, Otis Young, Carol Kane, Michael Moriarty, Randy Quaid. USA 1974. 99 mins.

Jack Nicholson stars as Billy ‘Bad Ass’ Buddusky, one of two Naval Petty Officers who are assigned to accompany a young Naval prisoner (Quaid) on his way to incarceration. Nicholson is as charmingly off centre as always, like a man who wasn’t in the least bit interested in his own fate yet always knew deep down he was destined for stardom.
