Throughout the movie, the lowest ranking personnel are referred to as Privates and Corporals. But when the Air Force became a separate service in 1947 (about 10 years before the time depicted in the movie), the names of the ranks below Staff Sergeant were changed to Airman Basic, Airman Third Class, Airman Second Class, and Airman First Class. The general term Airman is appropriate for all of these, and should have been used instead of Private and Corporal. See more »

During a ceremony to Will Stockdale and Benjamin Whitledge, a radio announcer mentions Operation Prometheus, (that Will Stockdale jumped out of and pulled Ben Whitledge out with him, to parachute to the ground) mentions privates Stockdale and Whitledge's names. Stockdale and Whitledge (in unison) each ask saying their last-name Stockdale and Whitledge? The radio announcer answers back "Yes, Stockdale and Whitledge." See more »
Is still the best movie ever to tinkle your insides.
I first watched this movie when I was ten years old. I laughed and laughed and laughed. It still makes me laugh after all these years. When Andy, or Will as he was called in the movie, hit that button in the latrine and all them toilet seats flew up at once to salute the general I thought my dad was going to have a stroke he laughed so hard. My father was a private in the airforce and he related to this movie as he was in the airforce during the early 1950's. I lost my father on July 28th, 1999, and my mom in January 2000, but I have very fond happy memories of laughing with my mom & dad while watching this movie. Those memories are priceless. Thank you for those wonderful memories.
