Full Metal Jacket star dies

Lee Ermey, the Vietnam War veteran who played Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in "Full Metal Jacket", has died aged 74. The former Marine was hired by Stanley Kubrick as a technical adviser for the film but was so good training extras he was given a part himself. He went on to feature in some 60 films.
