Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 and unusual
2 September 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Tom Tryon's first movie. He is over the top as being the most unlikeable soldier in the 101st Division. Some 20 miles behind German lines on Day-D minus 12 hours they are casually taking prisioners. They encounter a tri-lingual French woman for sweet talking the Germans who let them pass thru to the American lines in the North. It's all highly improbable. The bad attitude shown by Private Mason (Tryon) should have gotten him transfered into a less critical position. I think of all the unlikely things in this movie, the fact that no one beats the stuffing out of Mason is the most unusual thing about the movie. Another strange thing about this movie, is that the unit doesn't accomplish its mission, you get reminded at the end what they were supposed to do in the first place.
