The Strange One (1957), starring Ben Gazzara, George Peppard and Pat Hingle, was made from Calder Willingham's novel, End As a Man (1947). The story was supposedly inspired in part by the author's experiences as a Citadel cadet.
The film The Lords of Discipline (1994) was based on Pat Conroy's novel of the same name. The movie was shot on location at Wellington College, Berkshire, England.
