At the very end, when Robert Taylor throws down his Tommy Gun and goes to the .30 Cal Machine Gun, as he starts firing, he's yelling at the oncoming Japanese soldiers. As the ending music cuts in, you can still see him yelling and when you lip read what he says, he clearly says "Come on you sons of bitches!!" which was revolutionary for a 1943 movie. See more
Sergeant Bill Dane
Don't tell me that's Jap jive!
No, Sarge, no. That's good old America. That's U.S.A. Well, music with our meals, eh! Fancy. That's Tommy Dorsey, from Hollywood! Ohhh... He sends me, Sarge! He makes me lace up my boots! Oh, brother! Keep blowing, Tommy, keep blowing. Oh, boy, he's tall tonight, he's tall. Yeah, talk to me, talk to me. Ohhh... ha, ha, ha. Give me some of that trombone talk, Tommy.

To those immortal dead, who heroically stayed the wave of barbaric conquest, this picture is reverently dedicated. See more
