When Barney leaves the hospital in the closing scene, there is clearly an open courtyard between the hospital and the gate. As Barney and Cathy run toward each other, they appear to be on a tree lined lane. When the camera shows them exiting the gate, the open courtyard appears again. See more »
"The Beginning" is shown in the closing credits. See more »
I saw this movie when I was a little Boy I'm now a pensioner and this movie has stayed with me my whole life As I was so young it set me on course with my life.
I promised myself that I would never go near drugs as it kind of scared the hell out of me being so young it left a big impression on me. I came across your site and just for fun typed Monkey On My Back And there it was wow memories ........How great but so sad they are.
It was a long time ago. Only one other movie made such a impression On me called Home Of the Brave it taught me to see a person for who he is And not the color of their skin I lived by this and it was because I was so young that these two movies made me the way I am I will take them to my final resting place
