Witness for yourself the rigorous training of Marine Corps Boot Camp. See why it's considered by many to be the toughest military training in the world. This unique 50 minute video takes you as close to the training as you can get without actually being there. From the recruiting process to the unveiling of the Corps' newest Marines on graduation day, you'll be amazed by the spirit and dedication of the young men and women who take up the challenge of recruit training. Shot on location at the recruit training depots at Parris Island, SC and San Diego, CA, this in-depth look at the making of a Marine has been acclaimed as an important work and a must see for anyone who thinks they have what it takes to become one of "The Few, The Proud." Molded in a furnace of shared hardship and tough training, you'll sense the pride, passion, and esprit de corps felt by those who earn the title...Marine. Also this DVD version includes the rare 1955 film titled The Challenge which shows young male recruits undergoing boot camp at San Diego, CA.

The Discovery Channel 3-hour film on recruit training is just better. Nothing wrong with this and it isnt as long but given the choice I would choose the Discovery Channel video.
If you want to see EXACTLY how a Marine Corps D.I. is get the R rated documentary "Ears Open,Eyeballs Click"
It's a bit more intense than is shown in "The Making of a Marine" which is kind of tamed down for the masses.
