The Last Detail

Two Navy men, Buddusky and Mulhall ‘Mule’ are commissioned to escort young offender ‘Meadows’ to the brig in Portsmouth, where he will spend the next eight years for trying to steal forty dollars from the admiral’s wife’s pet charity. The two men are given a week to get there and back so they see it as an opportunity to show Meadows one last good time before he lands in prison, although Meadows always seems as though he is about to break out and cry. Buddusky develops a fondness for Meadows, showing him life outside the Navy, drinking, partying, women and teaching him not to take every card that life deals you, preparing him for jail.
