Added DiffLines:

* Bradford Dillman's portrayal of Major Barnes in The Bridge at Remagen. Barnes speaks in a southern drawl while volunteering his men for increasingly dangerous missions and avoiding exposure to enemy fire himself. George Segal's character at one point imitates Barnes' southern drawl as a way of indicating his displeasure with his glory-seeking commander.

* Conrad in ''Film/ThreeKings'' - "I rigged the football with C-4, sir.". Although possibly subverted, as he later gains respect for the Iraqi locals, [[spoiler: so much so that he requests to be interred by them]].

Even if this character is written as an officer, it is important to remember that this is a class-specific trope. A military officer with southern accent, a good education and a genteel matter is not usually a Southern-Fried Private, but an attempt by the writer to provide some variety among a group of characters who might otherwise speak and dress pretty much the same. Good examples of this type would be [[TheMcCoy "Bones" McCoy]] ([=DeForest=] Kelley) on ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Surgeon Wilkins (Chill Wills) in the JohnWayne cavalry classic ''Rio Grande'', and Chief Engineer "Trip" Tucker on ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''.
