I'm not sure it was acting. One of my roomates (who loved FMJ) ran into him on Bourbon Street and started to quote the movie. Lee, started screaming and cussing at my roomate.

Not sure about your roomies encounter, but he was a pretty nice guy. Super generous. Easy to talk to. He was part of the local toy drive every year. Did dozens of interviews locally and you got a real sense of who he was.

He was well liked/loved/respected locally.

...but he did play the drill sergeant part well.

It's possible that my roommate did not approach him right before beginning to quote from FMJ. I wasn't there.

I remember years ago reading that he was actually a genuine Marine D.I.

He didn't have lines in that movie. It was all ad lib from his earlier years.
