Henry Wilcoxon was initially cast as Lt. Forsythe but was dissatisfied with the role and was replaced by Franchot Tone. The official reason was that he had a scheduling conflict with the movie The Crusades (1935). Four days of retakes with Tone were required. See more »
McGregor lifts and moves the Vickers machine gun with no apparent effort. However, the gun with the tripod could weigh between 29 and 36 kg (65-80 lb) so it is unlikely that it would be moved as easily as it is in the film. The Vickers was a water-cooled machine gun. The ones seen in the film lack the water condenser can which was usually attached to the barrel. See more »
For those of you young Gary Cooper fans out there, like myself, check out this great movie. It was filmed in the era of Gunga Din, Robin Hood, and They Died With Their Boots On and more than holds it's own with all of them. The Coop is at his best in this one, though for some reason this film is not touted as among his best. It doesn't receive the fanfare High Noon, Pride of the Yankees, or Sergeant York do, and that is a shame. This is a truly entertaining film for people of all ages---it has laughs, plenty of action, and surprising emotion. Check it out.
