Editorial Reviews

Once in a great while a movie comes along that truly grips and uplifts its audiences. Such a movie is An Officer And A Gentleman, a timeless tale of romance, friendship and growth. Loner Zack Mayo (Richard Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot and in thirteen tortuous weeks he learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. won an Academy Award* for his brilliant portrayal of the tough drill instructor who teaches Zack that no man can make it alone. And while Gossett tries to warn the young officer about the local girls who will do anything to catch themselves pilot husbands, Zack eventually learns to love one (Debra Winger) while his fellow candidate, a memorable character portrayed by David Keith, struggles with a very different fate. An Officer And A Gentleman is a rich and satisfying story with moving performances that will stay with you long after the film has ended.

Format: DVD
This film is a classic and viscerally honest portrayal of human conflict and personal growth. It clearly depicts working class young adults who sought to break away from past barriers and limitations and build better lives for themselves. It is a coming of age story, where a full spectrum of feelings are explored as young adults learn about fulfilling their potential, building value systems and attempting to fulfill personal desires with honesty and integrity on many levels. Two hot young stars were cast in the leading roles: Richard Gere who was riding high on his recent success in "American Gigolo" and Debra Winger who shined in her role in "Urban Cowboy". With stars of this caliber, it surprised me to learn (in the Special Features section) that doubts existed about the film's acceptance by theater audiences. In fact, the script had made the rounds of different studios for eight years, with no one daring to make the film which was essentially about training Naval pilots. The concern was it was too close to the end of the Viet Nam War and would be rejected by the public as being about war. Luckily, the film was interpreted very differently by the viewing audience who saw it in a positive light where personal survival, transformation and the expression of love were the key elements successfully played out on film.

Richard Gere stars as Zack Mayo, a hardened, slightly rebellious loner who locked up his feelings and dared not get emotionally close to people. He had been hurt as a youth when his mother committed suicide and he went to live with his dad, who was a selfish womanizer and alcoholic. When Zack announced his acceptance into Naval candidacy school to become a pilot, his father did not give him accolades or support.

Initially, my first impression of this movie was this movie was going to be boring. Then, after the first 20 minutes, my mind went into another direction. I found this movie to be interesting, and I knew there had to be some meaning to the movie. And indeed there was!
Zack Mayo, (Richard Gere) is a college graduate who pursues a chance to become a naval officer by entering the Officer Candidate Training School. In 14 solid weeks, Zack progresses and learns the ability of leadership, friendship, and discipline, through his tough drill instructor, (Louis Gossett Jr, in his Oscar-winning performance), and his friends.
Mood and tone are expressed intelligently through the emotions of adventure, torture, romance, and entertainment. My favorite aspect of this movie is Jack Nitzsche's unforgettable scoring. The mood and tone ties in together as the music plays, and makes the audiences feel spontaneous of what they are watching (especially with the love themes).
This movie, starring Richard Gere, Debra Winger, David Keith, Lisa Blount, Louis Gossett Jr., Robert Loggia, and Lisa Eilbacher, was the winner recipient of 2 Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actor: LOUIS GOSSETT JR., and Best Original Song: "UP WHERE WE BELONG." Also nominated for 4 additional Academy Awards, including Best Actress: DEBRA WINGER, Best Original Screenplay: DOUGLAS DAY STEWART, Best Original Score: JACK NITZSCHE, Best Film editing, and nominated for a total of 8 Golden Globes, this movie unmarks the boundary between love and adventure.
Richard Gere, even though nominated for a Golden Globe, should of been nominated for an Oscar. His outstanding performance brought the true nature of what it's like to be his character. This was the performance of his entire career!
With a clear-cut picture, and sharp sound, this movie will never grow old in your home! I would positively recommend this movie to another.

Just got the new Blu Ray of "An Officer and a Gentleman" this week from Amazon.

Wow! The picture is fantastic-- just beautiful. With sharp, colorful, blu-ray video quality! Extremely natural flesh tones and other colors, and indeed, a very natural picture in all respects. The sound is . . . even better. It's so clear and perfect, coming out of just my HD TV's own speakers, that I didn't know those speakers could sound so good until now (especially noticeable when some of the wonderful music from this movie is playing!).

The extras are terrific! Richard Gere, David Keith, David Caruso, Oscar-winner Louis Gossett, Jr., Harold Sylvester, Lisa Eilbacher, Tony Plana, and really ALL the stars and secondary players (except Debra Winger, Lisa Blount, and Robert Loggia), plus the director (Taylor Hackford), producer, and writer are in a wonderful, informative, lengthy 2007 "making of" documentary. As are the music writers and music producer for another feature about the Oscar-winning music (but neither Joe Cocker nor Jennifer Warnes participates in this feature). Also there is another great piece where Louis Gossett returns to Port Townsend, Washington, where it was filmed, showing us the sites and speaking with several local people who were there for the filming in 1981 (some had performed as extras in the movie, too). These Blu-ray extra features were all on the 2007 Special Edition DVD release, along with another extra about some military romances in real life. All of the extras look excellent on my HD TV, by the way; not soft-focus as if only made for the non-HD DVD.

The movie itself is a modern classic, truly a great film in my opinion, which launched and accelerated a lot of young careers.
