Battleground (1949) Poster


Richard Jaeckel: Bettis



  • [as Bettis is digging a foxhole] 

    Holley : Let's not try to reach China this time, hey Bettis?

    Bettis : Well there's no sense digging if you don't go deep.

    Holley : The last one we dug one together, you went so deep that when I climbed out in the morning I got the bends.

  • [Staniferd is too sick to stay in combat] 

    Pvt. Staniferd : Hey Kinnie, how about showing me the way to the aid station? I'm freezing.

    Sgt. Walowicz : Feeling any better?

    Pvt. Staniferd : Worse, much worse. I've never felt so sick in my life. Maybe, maybe I've even got pneumonia. (He walks away laughing)

    Sgt. Walowicz : He's really bad.

    Pvt. Bettis : Yeah, he's a cinch to go back to the field hospital, maybe even to Paris.

    Holley : I don't know. With that penicillin, he's liable to be back in a day.

    Pvt. Bettis : Yeah, a good, clean flesh wound is better. Then they gotta send you back.
