old unit the Second Marine Division On the bus trip to his new assignment he meets fellow passenger Stitch Jones a wannabe rock musician who borrows money from Highway for a meal at a rest stop and then steals his bus ticket leaving him stranded When Highway finally arrives at the base more bad news awaits His new Operations Officer Major Malcolm Powers is an Annapolis graduate who transferred over from Supply and has not had the privilege of combat He sees Highway as an anachronism in the new Marine Corps and assigns him to shape up the Reconnaissance Platoon Recon is made up of undisciplined Marines who had been allowed to slack off by their previous platoon sergeant an old veteran like Highway who was just about to retire Among his new charges Highway finds Corporal Jones Highway quickly takes charge and starts the men on a rigorous training program They make a lastditch attempt to intimidate Highway with Swede Johanson a gigantic heavily muscled Marine just released from the brig but their plan fails miserably after Highway defeats Swede easily They begin to shape up and develop esprit de corps Highway repeatedly clashes with Powers and Staff Sergeant Webster over his unorthodox training methods such as firing an AK47 over his mens heads to familiarize them with the weapons distinctive sound Powers makes it clear that he views Highways platoon as only a training tool for his own elite outfit Major Powers goes so far as to make the Recon platoon lose in every field exercise However Highway is supported by his old comradeinarms Sergeant Major Choozhoo and his nominal superior officer the collegeeducated but awkward and inexperienced Lieutenant Ring After Jones learn that Highway had been awarded the Medal of Honor in the Korean War at Heartbreak Ridge he tells the others and they gain respect for him and close ranks against their perceived common enemy Highway also has personal problems Aggie his exwife is working as a waitress in a local bar and dating the owner Marinehater Roy Jennings Highway attempts to adapt his way of thinking enough to win Aggie back even resorting to reading Harpers Bazaar and Cosmopolitan to gain insights into the female mind Initially Aggie is bitter over their failed marriage but tentatively reconciles with Highway Then the 22nd Marine Amphibious Unit Highways outfit is deployed for the invasion of Grenada After a lastminute briefing in the hangar bay of the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima LPH2 Highways platoon mounts their UH1 Huey and are dropped by helocast into the water in advance of the rest of the Battalion Landing Team While advancing inland they come under heavy fire Highway improvises ordering Jones to use a bulldozer to provide cover so they can advance and destroy an enemy machine gun nest They subsequently rescue American students from a medical school Later when they are trapped in a building by enemy armor and infantry radioman Profile is killed and his radio destroyed cutting them off from direct communication Lieutenant Ring shows initiative and comes up with the idea of using a telephone to make a long distance call to Camp Lejeune and call in air support After getting out of the jam on the hilltop despite Powers explicit orders to the contrary Lieutenant Ring Gunny Highway and the Recon Platoon take out a key enemy position and capture the Cuban soldiers manning it When Major Powers learns this he bawls Ring and Highway out and threatens Highway with a courtmartial but their commanding officer Colonel Meyers arrives and reprimands Powers for discouraging the mens fighting spirit calling Powers a walking clusterfuck as an infantry officer strongly suggesting he transfer back over to Supply When Highway and his men return to the U S they are met by a warm reception complete with an honor guard and the division band To Highways mock dismay Stitch Jones informs him that he is going to reenlist and make a career in the Marine Corps while Highway confides to Jones he is taking mandatory retirement Aggie is there to welcome him back and the two of them walk off together followed by the other members of Recon along with their loved ones Clint Eastwood as Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Highway Marsha Mason as Aggie Everett McGill as Major Malcolm A Powers Moses Gunn as Staff Sergeant Luke Webster Eileen Heckart as Mary Jackson Mark Mattingly as Franco One Ball Peterson Bo Svenson as Roy Jennings Boyd Gaines as Lieutenant M R Ring Mario Van Peebles as Corporal Stitch Jones Arlen Dean Snyder as Sergeant Major J Choozhoo Vincent Irizarry as

Johanson Richard Venture as Colonel Meyers Peter Jason as Major Devin John Hostetter as Officer Reese Productionedit Screenwriter James Carabatsos a Vietnam veteran of the 1st Cavalry Division was inspired by an account of American paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division using a pay telephone and a credit card to call in fire support during the invasion of Grenada and fashioned a script of a Korean War veteran career Army noncommissioned officer passing on his values to a new generation of soldiers Eastwood was interested in the script and asked his producer Fritz Manes to contact the US Army with a view of filming the movie at Fort Bragg 3 However the Army read the script and refused to participate due to Highway being portrayed as a hard drinker divorced from his wife and using unapproved motivational methods to his troops an image the Army did not want The Army called the character a stereotype of World War II and Korean War attitudes that did not exist in the modern army and also did not like the obscene dialogue and lack of reference to women in the army Eastwood pleaded his case to an Army general contending that while the point of the film was that Highway was a throwback to a previous generation there were values in the World War II and Korean War era army that were worth emulating Eastwood approached the United States Marine Corps which expressed some reservations about some parts of the film but provided support The character was then changed to a Marine This raised some conceptual difficulties given that the Battle of Heartbreak Ridge primarily involved the Army This is explained very briefly in the film when Sergeant Major Choozoo tells Stitch Jones that he and Highway were in the 23rd Infantry Regiment at the time and joined the Corps later The Marine Corps first cooperated with the film project by allowing much of the filming to be done at Camp Pendleton The Marines planned to use it to promote its Toys for Tots campaign but upon viewing a first cut quickly disowned the film because of the language Marines who viewed the film cited numerous issues with the way they were portrayed Major Powers the battalions S3 Operations Officer is repeatedly shown disparaging and insulting Gunny Highway as well as showing blatant favoritism regarding his Marines of the First Platoon In reality this would have been extremely unlikely given Highways Medal of Honor Much of the training done before the Grenada invasion was highly inaccurate including the fact that Highways Marine Recon unit did not have a Navy corpsman to deal with his men if injured Even on a relatively small budget the technical advice was poor The Defense Department originally supported the film but withdrew its backing after seeing a preview in November 1986 4 Eastwood was paid 6 million for directing and starring in the film 5 Beginning in summer 1986 Heartbreak Ridge was filmed at Camp Talega the location of the barracks Chappo Flats the location of the parachute rigging scene and Mainside the 1st Marine Division headquarters on Californias Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base the former campus of the San Diego Military Academy SDMA Solana Beach and Puerto Ricos Vieques Island 1 The sequence involving the bulldozer is based on a real event during the invasion of Grenada involving Army General John Abizaid former commander of US Central Command 6 The American attack on Grenada is in some respects accurate although it was really U S Army Rangers that secured the University Medical School The scene in which Lieutenant Ring must resort to using a credit card in order to communicate with his commanders was also based on reallife events involving Army paratroopers 7 The film was the 1000th to be released in Dolby Stereo 8 Music and soundtrackedit The score for the film was originally composed by American saxophonist Lennie Niehaus and Desmond Nakano Actor Mario Van Peebles wrote Bionic Marine and Recon Rap and cowrote I Love You But I Aint Stupid with Desmond Nakano The final scene of the movie in which Highways platoon returns to the United States features the 1st Marine Division Band a fact which betrays the reality that the scene was filmed on the West Coast not at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock North Carolina where the scene takes place in the movie Receptionedit Reviewsedit Reaction to the film was generally positive Among reviews Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times gave the film three stars and noted how the movie has as much energy and color as any action picture this year and it contains truly amazing dialogue Ebert also complimented director Eastwood mentioning how he caresses the material as if he didnt know B movies have gone out of style 9Paul Attanasio of the Washington Post agreed saying Those with an endless appetite for this sort of toughmantenderchicken melodrama will enjoy watching Clint go up against these young punks and outrun outshoot outdrink and outpunch them in the process lending an idea of what it means to be a Marine 10 Another Washington Post staff writer Rita Kempley offered a different view commenting that it was always fun to see misguided machismo properly channeled into service of God country or the National Hockey League Isnt that the trouble with combat movies these days From Top Gun to First Blood to Clint Eastwoods entertaining action drama Heartbreak Ridge the emptyfoxhole syndrome makes for nonendings 11 The staff at Variety added to the encouraging reviews saying that the film offers another vintage Clint Eastwood performance There are enough mumbled halfliners in this contemporary war pic to satisfy those diehards eager to see just how he portrays the consummate marine veteran 12Vincent Canby of The New York Times expressed his satisfaction with the film writing that Eastwoods performance is one of the richest hes ever given Its funny laidback seemingly effortless the sort that separates actors who are runofthemill from those who have earned the right to be identified as stars 13 In terms of negative feedback reviewer Derek Smith of the Apollo Movie Guide wrote that there was not enough substance to Gunny to make him interesting enough to be the central character of a film and since the movie offers nothing new or fresh it just feels dull and uninteresting 14 Accoladesedit The film won the BMI Film Music Award for Lennie Niehaus and the Image Award in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Mario Van Peebles The film also received a nomination from the Academy Awards for Best Sound for Les Fresholtz Dick Alexander Vern Poore and Bill Nelson 15 Box officeedit At its widest distribution in the U S the film was screened at 1647 theaters grossing 8100840 in its
