The uniforms and equipment the U.S. paratroopers wear in the film are fairly realistic for the D-Day period, including the white "card suit" markings the 101st Airborne Division used on the sides of their helmets to identify sub-units in the Division. The paratrooper's helmets in the film carry the heart suit of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment. See more »
The beginning of the movie with the opening credits shows paratroopers jumping from C-119 Flying Boxcar transport aircraft. The first C-119 made its initial flight in November 1947, over 3 years after the period the movie depicts, (June 1944) See more »
Interesting plot twists that make this better than many war movies.
One interesting thing about watching multi-character movies is the increased chance of spotting future stars. War movies are good for doing that especially. In this movie, several minor actors became bigger stars. Another highlight of this movie are the use of script devices that add energy to the plot. Imagine being blind behind enemy lines. Or become frustrated with language barriers to the point of using creativity to overcome that hindrance. It is worth a look.
