Private Paula

 

Here’s something I didn’t know…

In the German-dubbed version of Full Metal Jacket, Vincent D’Onofrio’s character Private Pyle is rendered “Private Paula”.

GySgt Hartmann’s (“hard man”) berating Pyle is just as impressive auf Deutsch! Though the expression “if it short-dicks every cannibal on the Congo” is no more illuminating when it’s translated into German.
