Released in 1957 - The Strange One was a powerful and intense drama that starred a very youthful and dynamic, Ben Gazzara..... Set in Florida at an exclusive military college, the vicious bully, Cadet Sgt., Jocko DeParis, uses his deceiving magnetism and the school's own military code to manipulate his fellow cadets and officers in order to have his hated rival (the son of the college's Major) expelled.... This greatly overlooked film featured a really fine cast. It was filmed in black and white.

Dear children: when your parents threaten to send you to military school, they're expecting strict discipline, perhaps some hazing. They are not expecting Ben Gazzara to "tear you in half" with a broom handle. TSO is, um, The Citadel Story, written by Tennesee Williams and Rod Serling. With some M*A*S*H* thrown in. Why not?
