Did You Know?
When Major Oliver's airplane is shot up over Japan and he orders everyone to abandon ship, his bombardier, Joe Collins (Robert Ryan) takes out a Colt M1911 pistol and shoots the bombsight. The airplane is hit and he is thrown to one side. He straightens up and proceeds to shoot the bombsight again, only he is now holding a revolver. See more
